sorry if my post gives odd info but its just what ive had passed on to me ! When the valve is shut tight theres no movement in the penny valve itself but the actual but the circular plate has some play in it and can be lifted without the actual arm itself being moved at ( if that makes sense?) The guy has told me that the circular plate is able to lift slightly even though the arm itself is not moving !! He said theres a washer thats allowing movement of that plate that keep it shut even when the actuator is wound right tight?? Im sure i had a vid to show this some were?? Anyhow! He seems sure its the cause of the problem so lets see if it is!

I think he's saying the penny valve is either warped or the seat is distorted.
Unlikely in cast iron though. Perhaps just needs re seating.
Another possibility is the shaft bearing sleeve is so badly worn the bottom of valve has a gap.

What he does need to do is bin his actuator with a Bodge it spring on it.
