removing fuel pump valves

Got to overhaul my fuel pump: Haynes manual says scrape off the burring holding valves in place, how to do this isn't very obvious to me on inspecting my pump. Any tips?

If you look closely at the rim of the valve you should see where the casting has been staked to hold the valve in place - in three or four places.
It is these areas you need to scrape off with a sharp scraper or a sharp file tang to enable you to lever the valve out.
You then stake the new valve in different locations using a small punch.
