A little hooked puller widget might yank the one on he right out.
The one on the left, if it seals any, might come out by over pressurizing with a grease gun, might also split the housing...

Drilling and threading a small slide hammer in sounds like a good idea too.

Sheet metal screw in the small slide hammer worked like a charm, took less than a minute to pop them out with absolutely no damage what so ever to the casting. Only way to go.

Here is a picture of my glass top fuel pump from my '48 1.5 ton. Before I destroy my old valves I want to make sure that these new ones (in the picture) will work on my pump. The kit I purchased is from Jim Carter.
I appreciate all input, Thanks

I did as Denny mentions with the sheet metal screw. Worked perfect. I've done this a few times.

Don is this what you would consider a 'small slide hammer'?
Do you see any problems with the new valves ? Though they have a different style top/bottom the size and functionality seems the same to me.

I used a cotter pin puller on mine and popped them out. It didn't mar the pump top.

As long as the valves are the same size, they should work. Mine were different types but the size was the same.

Other AC pumps I've taken apart had a small hourglass piece of thin metal placed between the valves to hold them in place and attached directly between the valves with a small screw.

Thanks Jeff, I picked up a cotter pin puller today, tomorrow I hope to remove the old ones.

I have also used a vice grip on the screw and then a small piece of wood to pry against. They come out pretty easy. The replacements usually look different but work just fine.

The old ones were not to difficult to remove. The 'star face' broke off of one, but otherwise it was straight forward. Thanks again!
