Im missing the check ball disk too in my check valve.

So I gotta find something to stick in there. It must be some kind of washer or gasket that the ball seals to, and doesnt suck all the way up to the top.

Could you use a modern plastic pickup tube?
if you didnt want to go that route ,you could make something up to sit inside and on top of the check ball and then the pickup tube itself would hold the washer down.

Ahhh I see its a different animal than a press fit check tube.
Im guessing youd have to fab a very small piece of metal up to sit inside

I think it is press fit. I saw a thread where someone had theirs taken apart. I can't find it though. I'd like to see what the parts look like in decent shape. So I can fabricate the piece I need.

I'm almost ready to get this engine back together and see how it runs. My intake valve had some pitting in it. But right under where it seats. So it shouldnt effect it. I'll leave it for now.

I was at a garage sale and the guy had a valve grinder for sale. I thought.. When would I ever use that!? But it was $100 and I almost bought it.

After removing the end piece with the screen in it. Put the pipe tube in a vice, carefully, then hacksaw a couple of grooves about 1/8" deep so when the check ball goes all the way up fuel can flow through the pipe with no restriction.

I have seen them from the factory like this.

I got a 3/16 steel ball bearing.

Seems like a good size. Anyone have one of these apart to measure the bearing?
