I did this to mine about 2 years ago, so far not a problem. But it will not help if the valve is physically damaged already. What I did was disconnect the vacuum hose from the solenoid (the one that goes from the valve to the solenoid) an plugged up the nipple on the solenoid. No problems with anything so far and IMHO about 100x easier then the hose solution.
