The first thing, before being able to turn those valves, is to be able to pull the large chrome ring away from the backing ring on the inside of the fabric. This might require an extra pair of strong hands. There is a tension spring (which is there for the overpressure blow off) which pulls these 2 surfaces toward each other and has one surface seat against the other surface to maintain an airtight seal. If the lube between these surfaces has dried out and they surfaces are adhering somewhat to each other, it will be much easier to pull the surfaces straight apart than rotate one on the other.

i went to disassemble my valves today and this was as far as i could get. i know theres a nut down there so i loosened it and i still wasnt able to get the valve out or to be able to turn. they obviously need to be cleaned and maintained. just so everyone knows, i got this boat motor and trailer for $100! i had to buy it. i know it needs work but im more than willing to have a boat for that cheap.

$ 100 !!! The tubes look to be sound. The transom & floorboards may need some refinishing, but still that is basically a free boat. Nothing wrong with an older Mark III GR !
