I don't think most people here buy MBCs. There's a nice DIY thread around here somewhere. I think I've got a spare built if I can put my hands on it....

The DIY is the same stuff as the EBAY china stuff you do not want, a fitting is a fitting with a metal ball and a spring, nothing spectacular about it.

why not buy a Granger valve MBC (DIY) for about $15. Love it like the rest of us do. Then put the $75 that you would save on that deal toward a replacement for your slipping clutch.

Be your own f-ing quality control.

Brand name just means that you don't have to put any work into it, and it is shiny.

^FRT, that is exactly what i was talking about!!!! i built the same one. except while you are shopping at McMaster Carr you should pick up a 5/16 Ceramic ball for $2 for that split second faster response.

Agreed. Couldn't be happier with mine. Took me 2 min to build. Hardest part was finding a drill bit small enough to make the vent.
