Be mindful of how you support the head, you don’t want the valve head to accidentally make contact with anything, though that shouldn’t happen anyway if you’re careful. As for reassembly, you will need a compressor tool for that, but you will likely find that as a “loaner tool” at your nearest parts store.
Yo da man doodah man! Thank you again!
