entry for Boots' antique irrigation museum

  1. Moody and buckner nozzles were interchangeable. I believe RB for awhile had a coarser thread nozzle that fit that popup as well.

    Moody nozzles did not have a flat that would fit a Buckner wrench.

    All the spanner wrenches would work on any brass popup. Even Rain-O-Mat had a brass popup body with spanner slots. (it had a curious appearance because the top was not round, but rather an octagon)
     
  3. I'm confused. It's a moody nozzle and a Buckner head. At least I think that's what you are saying. Just because Moody didn't have a flat on its nozzle doesn't mean it couldn't be used on a Buckner.

    You are confusing yourself. The Hall head won't be identified from looking at the top, because Moody made the exact same head. If the Hall valves and controller are by Moody, and the nozzle on the Hall head is definitely not a Buckner, why not allow that all the Hall components were made by Moody?

    That red sand? I made a couple of castings to in shop class.

    I've installed a few of the Moody brass popup bodies, and they could be twins of the old Buckner design.

    I probably don't have any of them, unless something is in the scrap box. I used to order the Royal Coach 13040 bodies for coarse-thread-nozzle use. I believe the Moody number for that spray body was 513.
