I am consistently losing pressure on the above boiler and have narrowed the fault down to the seal on the pressure relief valve for the central heating element. I think the internal rubber seal has perished or there is some debris preventing a full seal. I have brought a replacement valve.
Question - Can I just replace the spring loaded seal element of the old valve with that from the new valve which just screws into the brass body? This would save a great deal of work and any thoughts would be appreciated.

Yes, as long as the brass valve seat is ok and not damaged at all it should be ok.
