Ran across these valves, 1 has a bad solenoid, but neophyte that I am, I haven't a clue what brand it is. Can you help?

Thanks

OK, Thanks, I was assuming it was a Toro as well, but can't see any ID on it.

a 252 with the metal rings around where the thread ends are.

most all 250 series parts interchange for the 1" models.
diaphrams solenoids top ends.. etc.

It's a Toro 250 something. Go to sprinklerwarehouse.com and click "valve ID".

The screws on those tend to be soft, and easily stripped. Clean out all the dirt from the top of the screw, and use the right sized tip to remove them.

Yeah.... good warning! Had to drill one out once... in a deep box... what a pain!
Did a gut swap on one recently everything fits.

Also be careful the solenoid pin and spring on those. The spring is the smallest I've ever seen on a valve and easy to lose.

It isn't the worst idea in the world to have a spare valve or two of this type, preferably with the flow control. There was a design change a while back, and the diaphragm assembly changed from a 'screen' type to a 'pin' type. That means you would be replacing both diaphragm and bonnet in a repair.
