Rebuild your Control Valve

I wrote this article for a magazine a few years ago on how to rebuild your PS Control Valve.
Pretty easy.

I have a paper copy of the PS Control Valve overhaul article that I copied 5 years ago.
Being the computer genious that I am, I'll try to figure out how to scan it & e-mail it to whoever wants/needs it. Failing that, I can copy & mail it.

Richard- I have your e-mail , so you'll be my test case.

Marty, just courious, my understanding is the 67' control valve has smaller hose fittings then the 68', is this the case, or was I mis-informed?

I'll check to see if mine survived. I'll let you know.

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Mike,
Yes, there are two sizes for the inlet size. Most 67's have a 1/4 inch vice 5/16 (I think) larger one for the 68's. Not sure of the cutoff point. I have had both.
