Okay, for those of us who haven't seen the toolies piston, here it is. http://my.freeway.net/~toolies/

I happen to have 2-4' sections of 4" pipe. My idea is to make two freakin' long toolies pistons with 2 1/2" porting. Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

*slaps self in face*. oops, read it wrong.

why not use them as air chambers, and make a regular piston valve?

Cost my dear friend, cost. It's much cheaper to make 2 toolies, which don't require expensive tees, than 2 regular pistons. Otherwise I would be making 2-3" porting valves.

true. the design is quire genius. when i first came here, that design puzzled the crap out of me. that was before I knew how a piston valve worked, what it was, or anything. :lol:

thanks for the link to the site. Hadn't seen the idea before and I like it. Will be giving it a try and doing some comparsions.
