Yeah.... good warning! Had to drill one out once... in a deep box... what a pain!
Did a gut swap on one recently everything fits.

Also be careful the solenoid pin and spring on those. The spring is the smallest I've ever seen on a valve and easy to lose.

It isn't the worst idea in the world to have a spare valve or two of this type, preferably with the flow control. There was a design change a while back, and the diaphragm assembly changed from a 'screen' type to a 'pin' type. That means you would be replacing both diaphragm and bonnet in a repair.
