  9. Remove rod (5) from plug (2).

  10. Remove O-ring seal (3) from plug (2).

  11. Remove seal (1) from plug (2).

    Note: Spool assembly (17) is installed in Port (1) and Port (3) in the pilot valve. Spool assembly (18) is installed in Port (2) and Port (4) in the pilot valve.

  12. Remove the spool assembly from the pilot valve.

  13. Use the following procedure to disassemble the spool assembly.

      Note: Spool (22) is assembled in Port (1) and Port (3) in the pilot valve. Spool (23) is assembled in Port (2) and Port (4) in the pilot valve.

    1. Apply pressure to seat (11) by hand. Put the end of the spool in the slotted opening of seat (11). Remove seat (11).

      Note: Spring (13) is installed on spool (22). Spring (15) is installed on spool (23).

    2. Remove spring (13) or spring (15) from the spool.

    3. Remove washer (19) from the spool.

  14. Remove spring (26) from the pilot valve.
