Butterfly Valve
The Valve in my 330 is seized shut I managed to bend the right side open about 1/4 of an inch, then I finally gave up. I am trying to open it all the way again. Does anybody know how to finally get it open or how to remove it altogether? I have tried WD-40, screw drivers, and hammers. It's not opening any more. I really need some help! :banghead:

I dont know how to remove one altogether, but you can try getting a good chisel , put it on the top of the pin where the valve rotates and give it a good smack with a hammer.

Is the Pin inside or outside the pipe?

It goes from outside through the tailpipe .Its difficult to explain but you can just go outside and took at it for yourself and its very self explanatory
