The forge divertervalve is an aluminum 2pc cylinder which has a spring
loaded piston in it that controls air flow, the piston is sealed with an
o-ring. Sometimes the action of the piston combined with the lubrication
and any crud that gets in there combines to make a dirty goo that would make
it work not so well...mine has looked ok when I have cleaned it out. The
stock DV I belive is a diaphraghm design that is maintaince free..
I don't know how often a used one comes along, but what needs cleaning?
something build up inside? Does that contribute to degradation of the OEM
valve, which can't be cleaned? Listers??
BTW, my calipers _are_ red, but they came that way in the kit ;-)
- No thumpin' sub or chassis neon here either. Hmmmm, I _was_ wondering how
vinyl roof would look on the "wagon".....Not!
