Default defective Xicoy valves

Hi Todd,

Sent you an email over a week ago, haven't heard anything back yet. I have problems two of the three Xicoy dual valves that I recently purchased. One has gone dead , the other leaks air continuously out of one of the exhaust ports. Is there any warranty on these? BTW, I sent an email to Xicoy as well, and that one too has gone unanswered.

Regards,

Mike

Hi, is the dual action Xicoy valve still available? Is it reliable?

Thanks,
David

A bit difficult to believe, taking in to account that Altecare NEVER had purchased Xicoy valves!

Since Todd replaced my original one almost 2 years ago, I've been running 2 of these in several jets now with no problems. They work great, equally as well as my Jetronics valves in other jets and are much less expensive. I will probably never buy Jetronics again as long as the Xicoy ones are available.
