moving to the front of the viking I proceeded to take out the tornado valve stem and spring.
Now I left the tornado valve itself in the marker for one main reason. I do not have any blue loctite. I recommend you do not take out the valve unless you have some more loctite to keep it in place.
Moving onto the SCM III take your 5/32 Hex key and take off the front cap. Note:
Do not take apart your SCM if you do not have a full tool kit. The reason being, when you air up your marker again there is the possibility that you may have left the pressure to high, and you will blow your noid.
Unscrew the "can" part and you should end up with the parts shown minus the brass internal and the part that goes into the body itself.
My least favorite part comes right here. Now you should use the proper scm removal tool, but I have found that a good pair of needle nose pliers works well, be patient here.
Now that the core is out, use your three prong tool and remove the part that is inside the marker body
When taking that part out I like to keep my finger inside and keep a good amount of pressure on the orings to make sure that they don't get clipped.
Here is what you should have...
