Detailed instructions and installation tools are available with each pump valve order. Triangle Pump Components valve pullers include the following components:
Puller Claw – 1” Internal Thread to be threaded onto the All Thread Rod (2) as far as the Rod will thread into the Claw. The Claw Nut (3) should then be “snugged” up to the Claw. This will prevent any wobble in the Claw to Rod connection.
All Thread Rod – 1” Diameter.
Claw Nut – Should be “snugged” up to the Claw.
Strong Back Bottom Nut – This is used primarily to keep the Strong Back (5) from sliding down the Rod while preparing to pull the valve. This Nut is not necessary to pull the valve.
Strong Back – This is placed across the valve port of the pump.
Strong Back Top Nut – This Nut is used to lock the Strong Back firmly in place on the pump. It is extremely important that the Nut be very tight on the Strong Back. If the valve does not loosen on the first bump, tighten the Top Nut again. A loose Top Nut can cause the prongs of the Claw to stretch out or break.
Bumper – This provides the impact to pull the valve.
Bumper Nut – The Bumper strikes the Bumper Nut in a quick upward motion.
Bumper Nut Locknut – This Nut serves to keep the Bumper Nut from moving during impact. It should be tightened up against the Bumper Nut.
