Wow, that's a very tiny valve! Very impressive. I like the whole pump and how it's shaping up. Great work!!

In the 1st and 3rd picture in reply 223...

Looks like a screw going through the valve block (the part the valve rod goes through) into the D slide valve.

I've not seen that before. What is the reason?

Thanks.

I always enjoy seeing your work. It's always excellent.

Walls in the slide are small, it's for stability.

Hullo Pavel......I have followed and chased as best the fluid lines on either side of these, but do not understand what these flanged round bodied assemblies with the representation of a grate milled into the top

I have dismissed flanged inline filters.....but now am stumped  :facepalm:.....and we see [3] three of them in this build.....the one I have shown appear to be on the discharge or outlet side of the water relief valve

Again congratulations on this latest build

Derek
