I just worked on a similar era sloan valve. The diaphram body was brass. I have never seen a diaphram with a brass body that holds the diaphram.

Good job.

I kind of liked the aged green patina of the old valve ... plus the nuts/washers matched. I give you an extra thumbs up for posting pics of your repair. Lots of people are scared to post pics here for fear of dissection and criticism.

Hmm, your running the service section?
Okay I am extremely impressed with your quick insight. Seeing replies like this make me want to check in more often.

Are you just trying to boost your post count by posting simple stupid replies to old posts?

So what? I don't have an issue with "necroposting" if you add to the conversation. He just posted a couple pointless remarks only a couple words long on several posts.

I guess you're right. I was probably subconsciously taking into account some of the other ridiculous things the previous poster has come up with.

Carry on, gentlemen.
