Ya I agree... your statements would mean a lot more, to me at least, if I could see some actual photos of this alleged valve.

Kinda sounds to me like the air is not getting past the piston, i'm guessing. Didn't you say you where useing sch.80 ? That should have held 250psi.

I know, the glue-job is messy, but its a prototype. don't even think about asking ask what the seal material is, you wont get an answer.
You can see how the back cap shattered at the screw points. However, I just figured out it was really my fault...only had 1/2 the screws in....was in too much of a hurry trying different springs and such, the didn't remember to put the rest in when I was pressure testing.
