    Mitzi BC Box Solenoid vale removal tool



    I had an issue with a faulty solenoid coil on a CMB P1010V E BC box, where the coil was knackered and had melted on to the valve spindle.

    While gently (honestly) trying to prize the coil off the whole spindle sheared off - luckily I sort of thought this might happen so had pumped down the unit as a precaution.
    So only dumped a bit of gas on to my head

    The valve bodies are available as spares - phew and seem to be removable, but need a 2 pin tool to remove.

    Mitz don't stock them Any idea where I might get one?

    Bent nose circlip pliers - poke the prongs in the hole & heave ho (aka, The Fangs of Fury!)

    Ps, I've been known to trim / shape / grind the prongs for a snug fit - a special purpose tool that you will probably never ever use again..

    Thanks

    Unfortunately Mitz now say that the solenoid valves are no longer available for the CMB P1010V E BC box

    I had 2 similar cases this week - with coils melted on to spindles - but managed to pull them of with a small bearing puller
