Default 1998 V-6 Accord EGR valve dismantle/disassembly.

'98 Accord EX V-6. Code PO401 - insufficient EGR flow. TSB/retrofit
exists for this involving drilling-over EGR port in plenum, installing
sleeve, etc. Done that part. Here's the rest: I removed and began
DISASSEMBLING the EGR valve itself. Yes, you read correctly. I
removed the 3(or 4?) small bolts and nuts that hold the metal mounting
base to the upper electrical part in an attempt to COMPLETELY
diassemble the valve into 2 basic pieces. However the metal plunger/
bypass ass'y connects the two portions and there is a high-heat metal-
foil gasket in between...now damaged, obviously. I either need to get
this bitch all the way apart (I can't seem to) and replace the gasket
OR find a suitable RTV (copper?) OR just replace the whole valve.
Obviously I would like to reverse my disassembly and repair/replace
the gasket. So let's run with that. Thanks. Kevin.
