Okay, so I have a 317 and the relief valve is stuck in the down position... there isn't enough sticking out for me to grab it with anything. it is flush with the rest of the hex. now I am just at a standstill because this stupid relief valve is holding me up. do you guys have any tricks to try to get it freed up and to move up? at least just a little so I can work it out with some vice grips or something, anything helps. feel free to post even just some ideas..
Thanks, Isaac

The relief valve can be removed, very carefully taken apart and freed up. There is a tutorial on IH cubcadet to show how this is done. I got carried away a pushed both of the rusty valves down on my cc 127 and had to fix them. Didn't use a lathe but very carefully remove the rolled edge on a bench grinder. The CC web site has about 100 FAQ to check out.

Isaac,
Here is the reference for rebuilding the valve: http://cubfaq.com/relief1.html

A quicker, temporary fix may be possible. With the valve removed, use a small, dull rod in the bottom hole to push the internal ball and pin back out. See this recent thread: http://www.wfmachines.com/forums/showthread.php/29406-Manual-Push-Hydro-Valve-Won-t-work-on-317.

I note this as a temporary fix because when the the rusty pin is forced in and out, the internal small o-ring will be damaged, resulting in fluid leakage. The fluid leak is messy, but the valve is functional.
