I reached in the tank and grabbed the pick-ups with a hanger. The last smart valve should be the only one that sticks because the first should vent through the hose running to the 2nd. Very carefully, I pulled the inner plastic ring out until I heard the valve release. Don't rip the mesh screen. Once it was extended, drop it back in. 3 pulls later, fired right up. This will be much easier than trying to reverse the leads. The connection is a little difficult to get apart without a small screwdriver to unlock the tab. You might get a little gas on your hands my way, but its much easier. Guarantee I will win the race of getting the dead sled started first. Also, never work on your sled at midnight, after you have dragged it back to the garage by hand and are out of breath. Doesn't make for clear thinking!
