sweating a ball vaalve

i know on many of the valves you should take out the guts of the valves before you sweat them to the copper pipe, but on the ball style valves, how do you take out the guts or do you just sweat them as they are?

Sweating ball valves

Most ball valves are sweated closed, you don't have to take the valve apart; gate, globe, stop and waste are sweated open just use the minimal heat to get the solder flowing. Luck.
