Not at you..... I honestly don't remember the specs. If you remind me later in the week when I'm back home I can see if I have a resistor laying around.

If you have an ohm meter or can borrow one read the resistance of one of your solenoids. Find a resistor of the same value and install it in place of the solenoid. Unless you’re going for a cleaner look there’s an article in Wiki that tells you how to modify the pintle and render them useless and they can stay in place. I guess a third alternative if you’re looking for a cleaner look could be to leave them plugged in and relocate them somewhere out if site maybe up under the tank.

Thanks PnutsC, 

Some good info there, It never crossed my mind to leave it connected and hiding elsewhere.

But will be going resistor way just to get rid of them, as one of the pins had broken and been repaired and im thinking the repair may not last.
