How To ( Or how I) Disassemble/Rebuild a Cartridge Valved Sheridan

I've only recently gotten into Sheridan's, but have been taking these apart constantly as of late and put together a video in case it helps anyone. I didn't a whole lot of information on the cartridge valves out there, so my process is based on just tearing it down and seeing how it goes. If anyone sees any errors I will update or re-do the video to include the corrections.

An example of something I am unsure of, was the re-assembly of the cartridge. I don't like that I ended up with the front portion being loose, in order to keep it aligned. Not sure if getting a new o ring on the other side so it tightens up sooner would help, or if I shouldn't bother tightening the rear portion separately.

Good stuff. How much would you charge to come clean and organize my work area like that.

Two things that I do / would suggest. First is to scribe a line down the valve before disassembly so you know where proper alignment is. Second trick is to carefully file 2 flats on sides of the middle piiece so you can use an adjustable wrench on it. I also just normally jam an allen in the valve hole ot take it apart but don't suggest doing that on the nose piece where it's threaded.

It would only cost some brass

I'll make a note of the scribing idea, that would definitely be helpful especially if the cartridge hadn't been apart before. I really like the idea of filing flat the middle piece, that would be a huge improvement over pliers on that small ridge.

This is a great little refresher. I haven't done any thing to my valves in at least 5y LOL! I was just thinking maybe it's time before something goes.
