Soak it in acetone?

Found a way to do it -- I put it on top of a propane burner and when the flames stopped I saw that the cover seal had fallen out.

Good news -

I went ahead and put it all back together even though the old parts didn't look that worn.and it's now neutral draining.

Thanks to everyone for your help.
