Need help on my cocker

I'm baffled on whats going on with my cocker here. I'm trying to remove the valve assembly and can not for the life of me figure it out. I removed the set screw holding the valve in place and you would think it would just push right out. RIGHT. Am I that retarded that I can get it out of is there something I missed in the removal of it. Any suggestions.
In the picture where the tiny screwdriver is where I took the set screw out.

might be easier to push it out with something from the front of the body. or maybe you could work it back with an allen key a little at a time. but yes it does look like youve removed everything holding it in place.

does it matter that it is a half block cocker? and does it push out from front to back or back to front..it kinda seem like it is seized up in there.

I did not hear you say if you took out the jam nut that holds the valve in place. For that you will need an valve tool.

you can try a 5/16" allen key if you're impatient, that might work if it's not too tight. i've been about 50/50 as far as being able to get the jam nut out with an allen, or needing the valve tool. definitely worth having a valve tool around, though, makes life a whole lot easier.

The hexagonal WGP cocking rods work too. May have to fenagle it a bit to get enough clearance for the valve stem to clear the set screw.

You can either put some leather or something around the cocking rod and vice grip it out, avoiding marring the cocking rod, or use two nuts on the exposed threads and use a wrench to unscrew it.

If the jam nut is still in, how can that not be the problem? The jam nut must be removed before the valve can come out. A 10 in 1 screw driver is perfect for the job. Just remove the bit, insert the socket end into the body and presto!!

I needed the tool to remove the jam nut so I order it and it's on it's way. Then I'll be able to remove the jam nut then the valve.

I've tried the 10 in 1 screwdriver and had mixed results.

Could you tell me what kind of issues you ran into and also the brand of the screwdriver?
