I haven't made that conversion, but I did remove the solenoid from mine. Those parts are all screwed together, so it takes two wrenches to unscrew them, since a threat sealant is also used. You have to be a little careful or you could twist off the screwed in part, but that didn't happen to me.

That is a bad place to use teflon tape. Tiny bits of the tape may get into the valve and partially plug the very, very smal opening that the CO2 goes through. It is much better to use pipe dope.
