The test valve bearing housing, gland plate, upper stem seal and stem were
removed prior to each test. Although the upper stem seal can be replaced without
removing the stem, stem removal eased the removal of the upper stem seal that was used
in the prior test. For test trials that were to be performed without lubrication, the gland
plate upper stem seal area was cleaned of any residual lubricant before that test sequence.
The stem and gland plate were reinstalled and the gland plate cap screws were torqued to
