Flow Vane Removal Tool
The Flow Vane Removal Tool is designed to remove the flow vane assembly on the SCUBAPRO R380/390 second stages. The procedure for using this tool requires that the flow reducer be removed. The tool is then inserted inside the mouthpiece shank with the slot in the end of the tool bridging over the flow vane. The bend in the tool is used as a fulcrum against the inside of the mouthpiece shank. By applying pressure on the tool handle, in the direction indicated, the flow vane assembly can be pushed out of the second stage housing. In this position, the flow vane assembly can be completely removed by hand. After servicing the o-ring, the flow vane assembly can be snapped back into place.
Note: Be certain that the crescent shaped cut in the flow vane is facing out toward the mouthpiece shank when it is reinstalled. The Flow Vane Removal Tool is fabricated from brass rod and vibratory finished.
