Modding a Rainbird 200PEB valve

Unread postAuthor: flyingspuds2007 » Sun Sep 23, 2007 9:19 am

Hey all.

Recently acquired the above-mentioned valve, already had JBweld in the noid hole, but other than that it's stock.

My main question is, should i remove the guiderod assembly and tap in a nipple, or should i machine an adapter for it that would leave the guiderod in place?

tapping a hole in the side is out of the question due to the thinness of the material at the sides and the fact that the phram is about 1/16" away from them when in the open position.

I'd take pictures, but i don't have a camera with me at my current residence.

yes, I saw that. i might have low post count, but I'm not a noob, I search. lol
I also said that tapping through the side was out of the question, as this valve has thin-wall sides and taping through would obstruct the path of the diaphragm as it opened.
