Default What does this Brass Valve fit?

I recently bought a brass valve that I can't identify. It is an International valve with 2 part numbers. The outside of the valve is 2356 D and the inside is 2357 D. While trying to figure out what it is, I bought an LB with one for the hopper drain, so I thought that's what it may be from.

I started looking through my LB manual as well as my EC-1-A manual and didn't find anything at all on the valve in the illustrations or the part number lists. Does anyone know what it goes to, or maybe even have some literature showing it? Thanks in advance for any insight!

So this is a drain for the LA/LB, but only for the milker engines? I wonder why that valve wouldn't be in the LB manual or EC-1-A. The only thing I see in the manual is a plain pipe plug like the generic LA/LB engines have.

Chances are it is for sanitary reasons. The drained water can be caught in a pan or bucket, not dumped on the floor of the milkhouse. no such concerns with the standard engine.

Hi All,

Andy is on the right track. It was for draining the hot water to clean the
milkers and the cream separator. The parts are in the book for the milker
pump setup and parts manuals.
