Not a chance that it will with out it cracking. Easyer to buy a new one from Hammon valve they have them.

Rick,
Agree 100 % with Joe, the seating will never be right, it will always be leaking and jamming. Time to file this one under Bronze Scrap for Remelting .

Thumbs up Re: Bent Throttle valve

Thanks much guys...guess I knew that before I asked, but what the heck...doesn't hurt.

Alan, I got it in the Murray Iron works package.

and Joseph, do you mean Hammond valve? I would like to use one of Harry's sponsors if possible.

Jim, it's a neat little valve with the self-centering discs and such. Believe it's a Buckeye. All the internal parts look purdy good.

Take care guys,
Rick

You could saw out a quarter section or or something like that and make it into a training aid and demonstration piece. People are fascinated with that, and it helpes the younger generation along. You might be able to press it straight (er).

Thumbs up Re: Bent Throttle valve

Thanks for the heads-up Richard!!! Not the one I was thinking of and does have a heap of "Class." We had a similiar push-pull type on the Wachs and just didn't have the vernier control that we wanted i.e....hard to get to idle.
I did place a bid tho as it is very classy.

Thanks again,
Rick

That is one pretty valve! Here's hoping you get it. I have one pretty similar I use as a throttle valve on my 13 HP-only problems is pretty much it's "on" or "off"-unless you manually hold it with your hand. Just cruising around I keep my left hand on it at all times if I'm wanting to go throttled pretty slow.

yea..going for 160+ rockets, it was a little over my head . I was reminded by my partner in crime that we have a lever type and found it in the gold mine...Inch and a quarter, but only good for 50 psi. I'll try to find the Murray Iron works thread and put the details on there.

Ya'll take care,

Rick

Photo Re: Bent Throttle valve

Thanks much for the heads-up Richard !!! Hopefully this one won't break my bank.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, I found this Milwaukee in our rat hole but the tag says 50 psi Max. So now I'm wondering what would limit this hell fer stout looking valve to 50 psi. Packing, temperature or both? I'd like to use it but only if it's safe.



Nice fall here so far
Rick
