9/16...11/16

Valve question.

Ok.
I'm coming back into the game after a hiatus.
Is this basically pre 2k vs post 2k?

No, pre2k/2k+ had to do with the banjo bolts holding the front block on. 11/16 also has its own front block threads fwiw.



More or less, its 9/16 WGP spec vs 11/16 merlin spec.


The 11/16 doesnt utilize the jam nut either. only the grub screw holding the valve in place. 11/16 is a through bore design vs 9/16 which has smaller bores up front holding the valve and spring in place.

Only reason I ask is, valves are offered in both sizes.

If I'm gonna drop hard earned money.

I want to get the best option.

With as little confusion as possible.

A body is either 9/16 or 11/16, a body can not fit both.

I never thought there was , now I could be wrong but 11/16 availability on the used market is pretty slim and the ease of finding 9/16 AC spec. out weighs any benefits..

You can get new in both sizes but like woouulf said hard to find used 11/16.

The only benefit I can think of is flow since there is more area for air to move through in an 11 which means you can lower your operating preassure.

So... they changed it from 9 to 11 so they could make a few bucks?

I'd like to think there's a better reason.
