    Make sure you have the diaphragm aligned properly. Tab with the two alignment holes and the exhaust port go toward the downstream side of the valve. Then tighten the screws in a sequence like tightening the lug nuts on a wheel. Screw them down until snug, and then begin the crossing sequence to tighten it down evenly.

    And yes the covers do interchange from DV-F to DV and vise-versa

    And this is why I hate those morons who pour around valve boxes...

    Replace it with a DVF bonnet anyways, flow control is a nice feature to have on occasion :)
