    That pipe sticking up out of the floor broke off with the old valve, so I couldn't get the new valve on without that cludge... Now the radiator leaks where it meets the valve.

    Help me figure out how to lower the valve! :D :crazy: :crazy: :wink1: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

    First, close down that steam! (we dont have any steam here in sacramento, but i can figure it out) ,,,,make it so the line is dead . The ,,it look like the nut connected to the radiator is a union type joint. Unscrew it.Crack that union loose. Then when your union nut is loose, simply turn the Valve couter clockwise. Take it off. Then unscrew your coupling. THEN that when you get to your rotten pipe it looks like. You might need to get underneath that (under the floor) to get to a section of pipe that wont crumble when you throw a wrench on it. Find where it goes to,(the rotten peice) and unscrew it from that fitting. Simply install how you took it apart.

    With your new pipe, screw it in.

    Put your coupling back on

    Then screw on the valve

    Then, screw back on your union, that connects to your radiator.

    I think :haha: :D

    Its so hard noy being there, but that should get you there.

    Also put teflon TAPE on the threads FIRST [​IMG]

    Followed with a generous ammount of taflon PASTE

    it will make your plumbing dummy proof basically.

    Hope this helps. A general rule of thuimb is, if ya put the junk back ,the same way you took it apart, you will be good, like wimmins and peeps :D
