Wish mine had been that easy. My sight glass turned to dust and fell out, shortly after I rebuilt it. It's actually plastic not glass and the AZ sun had completely disintegrated it. I had to take it all apart again, clean the casting really good, and filled in the hole with JB Weld. I ground it down nice and smooth, and so far, after a year and a half, it is still holding. Actually glad it was only the sight glass, the older models had plastic reservoirs (like on the rear) and the whole thing would disintegrate.
