What he said. There are two completely separate (identical?) disks. I'll see if I can get a pic of the parts and post them.

Thanks, Capt and motorman! That's really helpful info because the disk doesn't SEEM like it comes apart and I was afraid I would bend it by prying on it too much. I'll try soaking it.

Glad to help. Here's some pics. This is all the parts for the power valve:

And here's a close-up of the washers in question:

Here's the parts assembled on the sealing bolt sans diaphragm. The diaphragm goes between the two large washers:

Good luck!!

Today on the Facebook S30 group page is a post from an Australian titled "Flat Tops FTW 😂".  The post was just a video of a walk around of a smoothly running right hand drive  240/260Z with the Flat tops shown at the end of the video.  Looks like they are getting some international love.

I had some family things going on that kept me from getting back to this right away, but I've tried soaking mine and I don't think mine actually come apart. The way they go together is quite different from yours in the pics above. Mine don't have a bolt through the center holding it together. I've added a few pics of mine. Do I have a different model of some type?

I think I see the divot from the original lock washer dug out of the one washer. Something has to go through the middle. I'm thinking you misplaced some parts?

BTW, that float valve does not have anything to do with the power valve, right? It's only in those pics to show scale size or something?
