Brake shuttle valve

Post by Jules »

I now have a collection of three of these valves but they all seem very rusty and I'm not sure about re-using any of them.
Does anyone know of a refurbishment service from a manufacturer or even where I can get some NOS please?

This one is on e-Bay - 290671164976

They are readily available new from most suppliers. There are extremely few repairers that will match new quality for almost the same price. So I wouldn't even look at used.

Thank you for the knowledge, I was told they were like rocking horse poo!

Look up the part number and try some of the businesses. I bought three N.O.S. for next to nothing without any problems.

The usual problem is that most owners are too lazy and too cheap and ignore the shuttle valve altogether.

Well, I've looked up the part number (599443) and they are in stock at various places. Dunsfold have them at £134 which is not exactly "cheap as chips"!

Can you ship a cheap one over?

LRSeries have the ShitPart version for 89£ - which isn't exactly cheap either :)
