Creed Cupseal

I am in need of one. I don't plan on contacting Vanguard, because it appears that that's a waste of my time. If someone has one, let me know. I want one, and I will buy it from you.

If you have the metal poppet, then you won't need one. Just unscrew the white cup seal from the poppet stem, and replace the rubber oring that's sealed on the end with one of the same size. You should be good to go. It's a self service design. Make sure you don't scuff up the poppet stem with pliers or something. It won't seal properly if you do.

While you're in there I would replace all the other poppet and valve orings for good measure, especially if you have a leak situation. Then grease everything up.

The problem is that I tried that. That screw was torqued down so much that i had to put the metal end in a vise, then secure the cup seal with an adjustable wrench. I didn't damage anything, but as I started loosening the screw, the screw itself actually cracked in half.

I know that O-ring on the face was the issue, but I no longer have a way to hold said O-ring in place.

So now I have this screw still threaded in there, and because it's cracked I can't tighten or loosen it anymore. Maybe I should have applied some heat before trying to loosen it up, but it's a little late for that now.

Yeah, I've considered that. I wish they sold the poppet separately, considering I already have two valve bodies already. I'll hold out a bit longer, hopefully someone has one laying around, chances are slim though.

I've seen them come up on ebay from time to time as well. Just keep your eyes open, you never know.
