O.k. I've rebuilt my black tank gate valve in the past. Yesterday the pull handle broke at the slide attach point.
So I'm going to have to rebuild once again.... lucky for me it broke as I was trying to lube the blade... AFTER dumping at the Flying J island.
So the question is... as in 1984 AS in their wisdom used a none standard sized valve mating collar. All of todays new hose fittings are too small by about 1/2 an inch. Has anyone had this issue and is there a fix? I'm going to have it apart anyway so I figure this is the time to fix that problem as well. Will a new bottom half with mating collar fit the existing width four screw pattern of the top half?
Got my gloves on and I'm ready to do battle.
