You have to disassemble the valve to repair it, which means taking it out of the line. After doing that, and since you will not find new parts, it is easier to just replace the valve. There is no way to remove parts prior to sweating them in place, so you just have to use the heat judiciously.

: I believe I've fried the plastic seal aweating a brass 3/4" Nibco ball valve. Is there a fix? Should I (or can I) remove the non-metal parts prior to sweating these valves? Thanks for your help! greg
