    Do I need to tear apart the Taco 219 Flo-Check prior to soldering? I checked their web site but can't find installation instructions.

    I believe it is all metal so it should not be necessary.

    use MAPP or better to heat it quickly. flow the solder, let it cool enough to "set" then wrap a wet towel around the valve.
