C-5 is a less common spindle than the TA-10(and not interchangable) if I remember correctly.
Good description for standard proceadure for a stuck symmons valve. I had relitives who worked for the symmons brothers. I didn't know how wide spread they sold. I havn't found one in SW Florida yet.
Symmons, like Tempress, is an OEM valve supplier to a number of other manufacturers. I had a real battle with a Concinnity (no longer in production) not too long ago. The stem would turn, but the valve wouldn't function. Upon inspection, I saw that the stem had been customized by Concinnity using and internal thread and locktite. When the locktite gave out the handle would spin. So, I soldered the stem back together. So far so good, but if it lets go again, I'll silver solder it.
