We're not "stuck". We're just not quite ready to leave yet.

Anyway, feel free to tell us how cool you are when we bomb you with non-metric nukes.

hee hee heee.... Kudos Denis Leary, "we've got the bomb"

I think this one will work. The turbo rx7 guys have been using similar valves with the kynar/teflon construction successfully. Rated at 29"hg/150psi and 400f max momentary temps it should work.

I'm in. I got "outbid", but I wonder if we just told the guy we wanted a group buy on 20 or 30 of them if he'd be down. I'd get 3 or 4 myself. Anyone else in?

Ok, I contacted the guy with the first auction, he said for a group buy of 20 he'd knock them down 20% to $3.20 each, plus $3 shipping per address (don't know if the 20% applies to that as well). Which makes them very attractive if you want more than one.

I would want at LEAST two, but probably I'd get 5 or so, since they are useful for all sorts of things.

Anyone else want a few? Since they are cheaper than the crappy check valves from your local FLAPS, and 5 of them is cheaper than the fancy ones I see people buying, it might be worthwhile.

Let me know....

I bought one from that last auction. If you want to wait, I can report back once I have it installed and tested.

Sure, sounds good. 'Course, you beat me out at $4.50. Maybe in the mean time I'll come up with plans for where to spend the $1.30 I'm going to save. Maybe I'll buy a whopper!

Anyway, just fishing for interest here. My latest catch-can fantasy involves two valves...

Abe, If you are getting them can you order me two or three? I can split shipping costs with you if you are interested.

I am having issues with my PCV

Thumbs down not yet

no- guy said he ran out of stock and it would be here in another week. He hoped that wouldn't jeopardize future business with him.

If you don't mind sitting on them I'll probably take a few in about a year. No promises though, but...

Fred.

My can has no "stuffing". Just relies on the right angles to send the vapor down and let it condense the walls. Well. I popped the hood to screw with my tps and got a good view of vapor coming through my filter. It looked like a little chimney - so stick something in the can if/when you build it.
