TWO INDIVIDUALISING VALVES AND TWO BLANKING
One SET of TWO individualising valves and
TWO matching blanking plugs, to enable each displacer of a hydrolastic
or hydragas suspension to be individually set up and adjusted. The
existing car refill valves are used now for each of the front displacers
and the two new valves serve the rear displacers.
These NEW units are a direct fitment to the hose assembly joint which
connects the short front hose exiting left in the photo to the longer
rear hose going right in the photo, typically used on MGFs and "K"
series Metros and allows different pressures to be applied to each
displacer. This provides all valve positions in one central location,
which can be adjusted simply by flexing the hoses.
This is an improvement over the previous version of four identical
valves which dispensed with the front hose, but needed the new front
valves fitted directly to the front displacers in a position which was
fairly inaccessible inside the wheel arch inner wing.
Each individualising valve and blanking plug is pressure tested on our
test rig to 1500psi, well in excess of the system operating pressure and
this ensures these are completely leak free.
Each is supplied with an integral "O" ring seal and does NOT require the
use of PTFE tape or sealants, and each is fitted with the standard
Schrader type valve and a quality plated brass valve cap with its own
seal. The items of our supply are circled in RED in the photograph.
