4212 hydro issues

Still can't get the engagement button to pop out on my hydro. Does anyone know where I can get a book on repairing these??I would probably take it apart if I knew what to do.Wasn't sure if I could remove the button without doing more damage. It doesn't seem to want to unscrew from the hydro very easily. It's a mid 80's model #1691340. Thanks for any input! Randy:)

Hi, CAUTION! Will write more later its 1:23 and I am going to bed. DO NOT ALLOW THE BALLS IN either THE PUMP OR THE MOTOR TO GET OUT OF THEIR HOLES AND MIXED UP. EVEN A NEW HYDRO IS SCRAP IF THEY GET IN THE WRONG HOLES. They are selectively matched to the holes at the factory to tolerances in 10th of thousandths. Al Eden

I just got done getting mine out. I attached a vice grip to the plunger and then with a small crowbar to pry I pounded lightly with a weighted rubber hammer, it finnally came out. then used emery cloth on the rod and more penatrating fluid. It orks now but I am going to leave it out. Hope this helps Samson

Hey! Just got that button out! Kept soaking it with different penetrants. Tried some "Liquid Wrench" and it popped out the next day! Thanks for your help:) Just painted the deck today and finishing up tomorrow.
