I forgot to mention, I uses a wrench and a screwdriver but when the wife pressed the dump button and held it, the can didn't seem to magnetize but it did click and could feel that while holding the valve in hand and she pressed the button on and off.

Anyways, it is getting power and dumping air, just a wonky guage I think, see my post.

DO NOT spray WD40 into a valve, WD40 dries to a sticky, gummy film over time, and will likely cause problems in the future.
I just had the rear quick release valve replaced, the shop had to use PB Blaster to loosen rusty bolts. At first the tech thought he could work on the old valve but it was too corroded.

too late for me, from the posts on different forums/threads I read seems like it was wd40 that was used. I did dump air 2-3 times afterwards.
