use a flatblade screwdriver to pry the bracket holding it on off.

I've never had much of a problem taking the head off. I surely do not like the flat blade screwdriver idea at all. One little gurr on the head or solonoid body and it is toast. A twist and pull motion with your finger will do the deed.

1.) You cannot "weld" brass to plastic.

2.) If you have no clue how to disassemble the solenoid, how are you qualified to "fix" it for someone?

3.) Read THIS.

The head is just held in place via friction of one oring... It really isn't hard, and in fact, of the 4 boards I have had, they all come off very easily, even the brackets. I have never had to use tools on my ion other than allen keys for the screws.

1.) That's a possibility

2.) Owning a field/store would be fun

3.) We have badges/tags that field/store owners can get if they use the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page

4.) I like numbering things
