Silver Bullet Question

Yesterday I replaced all of a Silver Bullet except for the body and everything worked fine.

I noticed the new diaphram had a small "tab" (1/16" x 1/4" approximately) on it near the solenoid port and the new body had an indention in it where the tab fit in.

The old diaphram and body did not have this tab/indention.

Will this "tab" potentially cause a future problem since I installed it on an old body without an indention for it?

Sorry to be so elementary!

Thanks,

Mex

I wouldn't worry about it assuming the following
It wasn't leaking after you put it back together
It works as the valve is meant to

Like Peter says, "if it works..." I think it's just a modification to align the diaphrapm to the solenoid port.

It is always reassuring to get answers back from "those who really know."
