I bought the exact same valve from bunnings so this is very helpful, I was hesitant to do it because I thought the thread of the air fitting might get in the way of the diaphragm, but that tute makes it easy
thanks

I only paid $14.99, so I got 2 for a spare diaphragm so :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

It doesn't matter where you drill the fitting, he just used the little indent as a reference. Make sure the hole is as close up to the guide pin as you can, so it doesn't interfere with the diaphragm.

Well it depends, if it has a guide pin then drill your hole in the side and unscrew the solenoid (the heavy black cylinder) and fill the little hole underneath it with epoxy. If it doesn't have a guide pin then unscrew the solenoid and drill your hole right on top of the small hole left by the solenoid.
