[attachmentid=240549]is that some kind of gay joke??




you can either have torn the rubber in the diaphram or o-rings depends on the type of valve or they are dirty and no closing sealing properly

Yup, Joe's right! I had that shit happen the third day I had my Herion valves installed The right rear dump valve went out I lifted the rear right instantaneously came right back down...I thought it was gonna be all downhill from there. Nevertheless, I havent had one valve go bad ever since. :cool:

i was driven and i droped and i heard a hissing from the trunk and i went to check it out and felt the dump valve and air was just comming out. i have , VALVE-DIRECT 3/8" WITH 3/8" ORIFICE 150PSI but the PSI is only at like 80 or 100 when it happens. When i open the valve the O ring is bent alil so i think the O ring is the problem but it wont stay in place how can i fix that?

Sounds like a chassis tech direct action valves, buy a new valve of better quality or have like 20 rebuiild kits with you. Good luck...

what good valves? get the names to trust, parker and smc


Well every valve has its problems. Some more than others. I have seen many 3/8 and 1/2 SMC valves come into the shop leaking... I like Ascos and GC's personally. but to each his own. We use GC on our hopper without any problems so far. But i know you persoanlly had problems with gc's and some other valves, but again to each his own.
