Replacing old Toro 264 Valves

Hi all!

Looking for some guidance on how to replace my old toro valves. One has a female outlet that is attached to the poly pipe via a barbed fitting. The other valve has the barbed fitting for the outlet. Inlet is from a PVC manifold. How do I get these valves offf without cracking the PVC and without damaging the poly? My valve box is under a shrub so I don’t have a ton of room to work with and I’d really hate to do a complete overhaul.

Thanks in advance!

Forgot to note I’ll be replacing with Orbit 1” valves with female inlet/outlets. How do I get the old ones off and then once off, how do I get the new ones on? Work from the manifold out and jam the barb into the PVC and hope for the best?

Why not relocate the valves? You want open sky above your zone valves.

Can't you do better than Orbit brand valves?
