68 Carbine Valve Removal

I've tried following the instructions here: Complete Valve [68-Carbine] CA-V

However, when I get to the valve lock piece, well, I don't think my gun has that piece. I can see in that slot, and it appears that I can see the valve cylinder. That said, the valve is locked tight in place and won't budge.

When I bought the gun it was full of thick, nasty, gunk of uncertain origin. That could be contributing to the problem, and I'm also wondering if the type of valve could also make a difference. I have a lowish serial number, I think 9XXX. It is set up with the Tippmann aftermarket vertical ASA and copper hardline. By the video, it doesn't appear that the air input has to be disconnected to remove the valve, but maybe I have a different set-up?

Thanks for helping. I can post any pics requested this evening.

If you have the CVX valve then the airline needs to be removed in order to get the valve out. If you don't have the valve stop, you likely have a CVX valve.

Fantastic. Got the valve out. I am now commencing valve dis-assembly.

...and I've already found a source for a new one should I completely foul this up. Pro/Carb uses the same valve, right?

I'd heard that Tippmann valves were completely unserviceable, and now I believe it.

Finally got it apart, only to find that none of the seals are included in the o-ring kit. I've got it mostly back together, but this lock ring is a bear to get back in.

Sweet victory. The valve body o-ring was shot and the valve reduction fitting o-ring was... well, it was so far gone that I thought it was a shriveled up bit of lock-tite. Anyway, she holds air again. Thanks for the help, Chappy.

Edit: this was not, however, before I got frustrated, gave up, and bought some replacement parts. Oh well, guess I'm set for another 20 years.
