    Re: standard dv diaphram valve

    Dude, if you haven't replaced the Audi clips, then your best bet is to get some replacement hose clamps. I had a ***** of a time getting the std clips off, and IIRC they aren't made to be re-usable [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Other than that, it's a straight swap [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    strip, clean, replace o rings, grease, and reassemble, also replacing the lids screws with new ones provided.

    Re: servicing AMD Viper DV

    Sorry, that should have been:-

    Does the AMD Viper have o rings? I thought they needed replacing in the forge 007. Isn't the AMD similiar in design to the forge 006? Therefore only need as good clean down, reassemble & grease?

    Re: servicing AMD Viper DV

    the Viper has the 2 O-rings spaced out more than the 006 to prevent seizing.

    Sorry, I assumed id mentioned it in this thread, obviously it was another...

    I run the Amd Viper.

    viper acually has 3 o rings

    1 for lid seal

    1 on inside of body

    and

    1 on piston body itself.
