I have a small leak in the front of the gas valve where the dial is. It is a Robert Shaw Z-7982 on an okeefe & merritt stove. About 50 years old. Can this leak be fixed without replacing the valve?

It all depends where the leak is exactly. There are a few places that rebuild that style valve (so I'm told) but I haven't found any yet.

There are a number of businesses that will rebuild older and discontinued gas controls. Check with some of the companies listed in the 'Restoration' section at the link below. One remanufactures gas controls exclusively.
