I would try BVM. If they can't supply them then Mc Master Carr can, provided you know the dimensions and material.

Those valves look like they are made by Robart. You might try them.

Can i suggest that you try the BVM O-lube first before trying to replace them. Most of the time they just need a bit of lube on them to get working again.

I tried the lube already with no luck. Any side pressure on the piston causes an air leak. Thanks for the tip!

Since you know the exact make of model of your unit it makes no sense to screw around with industrial suppliers, there are far too many sizes and dimensions as well as materials that you do not know. BVM is in business and there is no doubt in my mind that they stock the exact ring. Their prices are not an issue or excessive.

I just ordered a small supply of their early wheel brake rings with no issue. I think they were a buck and a half.

Are you going to Chouchella (Dang I never can spell that name right)?

Coachella Valley is too far for me to make it this year. Hopefully next year it will fit my schedule!
