Scott are these better than the ones Langs sells?

My valves start their life as the same valve Lang's sells (P/N 6212). The donor parts come from the same manufacturer, since I have no practical way to make the Viton tip without the donor. The parts are then modified to the correct through-put for fuel. These modifications allow fuel to flow as intended: on long or steep hills, fuel pressure from the tank keeps the bowl at the correct fill, resulting in cooler running, more power and no surging (which are all caused by fuel starvation). My father drives a very heavy hack and lives in TN with very steep, short and choppy hills. With this valve, he now goes up most hills in high which he formerly had to shift into low and is able to climb hills on 1/2 tank of fuel that previously had required a full tank to get up and over. Why would that be? The restricted orifice of the presently available commercial valve requires much more fuel in the tank to maintain enough pressure to flow fuel into the carb when fuel is being pulled out of the bowl at any significant rate. His experience of running very hot on long climbs (lean), surging (varying fuel level in bowl splashing around), and stumbling on long hard pulls led me to investigate why that was. Once I realized how restricted the available valves were, I thought that I could come up with an alternative product that would flow fuel at the same rate per the original, and also incorporated modern sealing (Viton rubber tip), and thus came up with this product.

It is NOT helpful if you live in a flat area or just putter to the ice cream stand. The commercial valve is sufficient for that sort of driving and I do not recommend or expect anyone to spend the extra few dollars for my valve in those instances. However, if you have hills or plan to encounter hills, my valve can make driving more pleasant.

Lots of words, and I hope I have answered your question and maybe a few more.

All the valves are finished and bagged for shipping.

About 1/3 or more are already spoken for, so if you are getting ready for spring touring season, or particularly, the Feb. 24 Winter Tour in St. Augustine, FL., do not wait too long to order.

Note that these are cross drilled for the fuel flow to not only flow down the side of the needle into the bowl but out the holes in the side and down the outside of the seat into the bowl.

I have about 8 valves remaining. If you want them for the upcoming touring season, please act now. Temps going to minus digits and the shop is unheated, so there will be no more valves until spring. Since these are custom parts, I prefer to do them in batches and not one at a time. The next batch will be done once I have enough requests on a waiting list and then will make those, plus some extras.

Many thanks to all who have bought Full Flow valves already. Drive Often and Drive Safe.
