Now you can see the retaining in on the outlet side. This in is stopping the outlet side from rotating.

You can also see the large snap ring holing the "guts" into the housing.

The snap ring is large and you can remove it with standard ring pliers, but heavy duty ones will make the job easier. Either way a second set of hands in useful for removal.

With the ring removed we can now separate the "guts" from the housing completely.

This exposes the pin on the inlet side that is stopping the inlet side from rotating.

Time to get crazy with the dremel.

I used a standard heavy duty cutting wheel (part #420) to grind down both pins. Be very careful on the inlet side as the aluminum is soft.
