Thank you very much for the info!

Just as I thought-- replaced as an assembly, no user-serviceable parts inside.

This being the case, I think I might just leave well enough alone & not try and disassemble it because I that that might make it even more prone to come apart again.

I will, however, try and find a way to make that seal work a little better. I wish I would have had the time to pull the old one & source a new one, but around here, that could have taken days because such supply houses are so few & far between.

Oh well, if it comes apart again or fails to actuate, I'll replace it. BIG bucks, I'll bet.

Thanks again for the help.
