Anyone know any good modifications or useful valves you can make these things into?

And do you think i could implement the system in the valves into the T piece in the spray gun?

Well regarding the spraygun, what inclines you to modify a ~$150 device? Anyway, if you can access the internals, just addition of Vaseline will help, water seals leak ever so slightly when used with compressed air.

Otherwise I can't advise you much, those who aren't familiar with this rather popular spraygun need to see some internal pictures.

As suggested in a previous thread, you should be able to remove the stainless piece and dramatically shorten the valve.

yes, but the end piece of the valve has no threaded fitting, and would make attaching any sort of receiver and furthermore barrel a major pain.

The fact it is useless for what i want.

I thought I was wrong once, but I was wrong.
:D

Back on topic. The two valves on the bottom are OTP valves for water heaters. OTP stands for Over Temperature Pressure. They are a combination pressure relief valve and thermostatic valve that lets out hot water before it becomes too hot to make high pressure steam. If this is removed and you have a stuck thermostat, you have the makings of a Mythbusters episode. On old water heaters, sometimes those valves will corrode closed, or may leak so people plug them. The result is not good.
