None of this matters, Tim is in the Southern Hemisphere!  The results will be different in the Northern Hemisphere!  ;)

Tim just stirs the coffee mixture CCW instead of CW like us northern's do.

Any worries about the coffee effecting the rubber check valve? I assume you didn't seal the ends judging from no signs of the ends being blocked off.
Mike, I didn't want a color change on the valve, even if it would be hidden by the hoses, so I plugged both holes on the valve with some scrap rubber bungs as I wasn't sure if any moisture would affect the internals. IIRC from a previous thread, the valve just consists of a small spring and a rubber diaphragm though, doubt it would be ruined by a bit of coffee.

Ah, all the technical process questions!

1. Take chipped 99cent supermarket ceramic mug.
2. Add 2 heaped teaspoons of Nescafé Blend 43 granules to 1/2 cup boiling Aussie rainwater.
3. Dozen stirs counter-clockwise using slightly tarnished teaspoon.
4. Leave to cool while doing yard work, then pour into small Zip-Lok bag.
5. Add one $8 repro check valve from John's Classic Cars and seal bag.
6. Check until happy with color and remove.
OR
6a. Wife asks what is that mess in the bag on the counter? and you remember the experiment, remove valve and wish you'd caught it sooner.

Hi Tim.....did you try bleach to lighten the color?  Or just leave it be.

Ha! My long-suffering wife puts up with a lot more than an experiment on the counter. I had a pair of 186 heads on the bedroom floor for months (don't ask why) that caught their fair share of passing toes, then there was the time I used the dishwasher to degrease parts while she was in town, the next time it got used the dishes etc all came out greasy.... Then the powdercoating trial using the oven.....

Tim you are a brave man, but maybe the Aussie wives know what they are in for when they marry you guys..... ;D

My wife has to let me know when I smell like gasoline since I do not smell it on myself anymore. Other than that I try to keep everything regulated to the garage. She hasn't had a problem with me reupholstering seats in the living room though. No grease involved there.

Thanks for the valve coloring idea.

Going to try it on my repop windshield washer pump. That bright white stands out like a sore thumb.
