Honeywell FM450 reducing valve blunder!

Okay, I opened mine up to service it (the fast fill lever was sticking.) In the process I think I lost a part

Uscrewing the cone, I have the outer collar, the spring inside the collar, and a stepped plastic washer. When I put it back together the pressure setting screw does not reach far enough to activate the valve. Is there a short rod that goes inside the spring, between the valve and lead screw? There's no IPB on the Honeywell website. I've swept the cellar floor five times and I am finding nothing that fits

Reducing Valve

No chance the washer is in upside down?

I don't know what the plastic washer is or was for? It seemed to fit inside of the collar, but it doesn't do anything that I can see. So, it might belong to something else?? I found a lot of treasures when I swept under boiler!!

BUT!! I did find a stepped brass washer with a cone indent that matches up purrrfecctly with the pressure screw end... She seems to be all better now. I can fast fill, and adjust for the correct automatic pressure.

Treasures

Yeah, I bet you found a whole host of stuff.
Between you & Jeff, I don't know.
Anyhow, glad you got it put back together & it's working right.

I usually find better stuff wedged between the dryer and the washing machine!
