I think that's why lots of guys send them off to be done...http://www.cjponyparts.com/tech-rebuild-your-control-valve/a/139/

My rod was slightly bent as well - it's hardened (i.e. brittle) so don't get very pushy. I worked it very carefully by supporting it with a wood block on the high side and slowly pushing toward the block from the low side. Not perfect but so far it's held up ok...

I think that's pretty Typical. I'm thinking about upgrading to better design though> Total Control or the RS racing one the Ausies put out looks really nice. Wonder if anybody here has one..? Curious as to how it worked out...
