    Late 80's- early 90's?
    What was wrong with the old solenoid and bonnet? stripped threads?

    Valve solenoid -shot

    Diraphram=also shot.


    kept the old body, added new pin(which is about 1/4' longer than old...)diraphram,and solenoid.

    ran like a top after.

    Many of those Richdel jar-tops got rebuilt with new pin and bonnet back in the 1980's, when the original pins (tubes, actually) shifted position and caused the valves to fail to open. Richdel's redesign was about the best damage control I ever saw. Instead of trying to prevent the tube from shifting, they made the shifting a non-factor.
