It is screw and not a pin.
I will see if I can find a better photo of it.

What pin are you talking about?
The one under that white cam?
If that is the one you are talking about ... DO NOT REMOVE OR MOVE AS IT WILL CHANGE THE LINE UP OF HOW THE CAM MOVES THE MICRO SWITCHES.

Found the photo

the vertical pin coming out of the white part is a screw - is this the one. I can't tell with the horizontal pin.

So if you have the two out at the bottom and the one on the top in my last photo and have the white cam off the top of the motor there should be nothing that is holding the controls and the back plate to the valve body.
Use care with the brine piston as it is plastic and can be broken if not careful.

ok, so something is holding the white plastic cam on the top. I took the washer off - should the cam just pull off? Something seems to be holding it.

Most likely the micro switches are holding the cam from coming off.. some times they can be left un touched and then there times that they need to be moved.
There are 2 screws that hold the assembly down.

Both of the assemblies should be able to be Pulled out from the front.
The upper is the brine piston with cage and the lower is the main piston.
The upper comes out more times than not easy, it is the lower that I am on one side of the fence from others , they say that it will come out whole from the front with a gentle pull, I say that more times than not it will need to be pushed out.. but first try pulling it from the front.

The ones in the photo look like they will pass, what about the ones on the shaft that you are holding? how do they look?

There it is..!! the missing o ring... there is a part but it needs to be whole.

The o rings on that shaft like the one that is only part there are the ones that I have not found.

There might be some more that are only partly there.. pull that shaft out from the front, you pushed it in to show the end one.
