Creative pump piping 101:
The HO couldn't understand why it wouldn't pump.
Bottom check valve is set in concrete, then reduced to 1-1/2 going into and out of top check. Note the male adapters at the 90's and the slip-fix on the vertical. Whole thing fell apart when I went to cut it off - miserable glue job to top it all off.
And yes, Virginia, those are control valves against the wall in the 1st shot.
No coupler required.
The only thing missing here is a little bit of PVC.
Love those plumber installed systems..... steel fittings "swollen" with rust.
nice old-timey Weathermatic valves
Try 521ing that green solenoid version. I have fond memories of searching for those amongst 50 year old oaks.
big coils like those just jump up and cheer in my headphones
Interesting valve, in that the solenoid was a gravity design, and the plunger was all steel - it was the solenoid seat that was resilient
It would show up as a short on my stationmaster.
