Viking/Excal/Merlin tornado valve O.D.?
 
Hi, I have an... idea, but need some answers.

What is the O.D. of a Viking/Excal/Merlin tornado valve?

Thank you much!

they are different. Vike vs Merlin.

I can get you the OD of an Excal one this week if no-one has it handy beforehand , mine has a valve leak and it requires removal.

They all use the same valve, its the same size as a spyder valve, around 5/8 I can try to go and messure one in teh shop after I put my son down for his nap.

ahg, thanks man, I thought the cocker one was different.

Cocker tornado is different. Merlin tornado is the full blown viking style. Spyder size as bartman said.

BTW Evan, AKA made a limited run of Typhoon Valves, but who knows where they are today, if anywhere.

Is the autococker Trilogy valve the same O.D. as a Vike/Excal/Merlin valve?

I heard somewhere that it was.

Thanks again.

I dug out my merin project box (ML0088) and the valve measures .0686". Does that help anyone?

secretweaponevan 01-14-2008 12:46 PM

Yup, would like another verification just in case they changed diameters somewhere along the line. Thanks for the quick answer spymongoose.

hey while everyone has thier merlins/excals/vikings torn apart, did they change the length of the valve spring? mine is almost 2.2" is that normal for aka guns?
