    Would you try and how would you do that angle . Went today to change a
    1" valve and found that i need more parts.Well not straighten but less
    stress.

  2. I would cut back the larger pipe and glue in a 90 with a reducer bushing going straight down and then cut the smaller pipe at larger fitting or replace the entire valve. Then glue in another 90 going straight down, then make a bridge with two more 90's and glue it in place....

    like this if you have enough room going up or down if not...
