I think a slight clarification might help here.cafeIKE wrote:I can't imagine how much wear the cam must have to 'sneeze'.
"...wear of the drain valve stem at the cam" - Not the cam itself. Just the square, vertical, lever post up against the cam, if you will.

My quick mill e61 failed to drain, the problem after a cleaning and repair was that there were two, not one white teflon gaskets at the bottom of the head. One fails to drop out and if you put a second one on it... It does not work as desired.
The black (dirty) part of the shaft can be cleaned with any sort of cleaner including Cafiza, Simple Green, and even OxyClean (unscented of course). You can use a nylon scrubbing pad as well. Be sure to use a bit of lube on the two sealing gasket/washers through which the shaft passes when assembling.slybarman wrote:what is best for removing? backflush detergent or?
