First off you shouldn't of taken it apart if there was no problem with it. The 1077 valve is a bitch to seal back up without a leak in the valve because the oring under the valve end and c clip. The oring must be perfectly in place when you squeeze the c clip into the recessed groove to hold the valve end. It's actually a major pain in the butt to fix (seal) these valves or modify them for that matter. Some people can never get them to seal ever again and opt to buy a new valve.

Good luck !

I'm convinced there's a "tool" for this job, and I don't got one.
It's a real peach that requires great finesse, while applying copious force. . . . And swear words. . .
I always forget the correct sequence of swearwords that solves this damned little puzzle lock, and have to come up with a new sequence nearly every time. . . .
I less than lovingly refer to the 1077 as a BlueFlameSpecial.
Feel your pain. . . :x

Never done one but how about putting it in a vice with just the
right size socket over the stem. When I say socket I mean like
a 1/4' drive deep socket maybe.

I use a 3/32" diver bit and a small vice, it still doesn't make it a "process", but it helps. I'd made a fitted delrin "driver" that allowed me to push
the c clip into its groove while simultaneously compressing the valve. It worked a half dozen times before it deformed enough not to be effective. It
was a bit of a bear for me to make without a lathe, so it hasn't been replicated.
Back to the driver and blue flame method. . . .

I know one thing. If there is a 1077 which had to have valve removed, that's the end of 1077. It is unfixable. You can go ahead and buy a new one.
There were so many people who tried to fix valve so many times, it just does not want to work after it breaks once.

To sum up, never take 1077 apart, cause if you do, you might as well throw the thing away.

Your experience differs from my own, and many other fans(I'm not) of this platform.

They are indeed re-buildable, and even a little hot-rod-able(from standard Canadian spec). Not without effort (and a wee bit of luck).
