- I think you're close to what's happening, Drado. That valve is so tight it's flexing inward. I breathed through the holes before I put the valve on and it wasn't bad at all. I've got a couple of the new wagon wheel valves and I think I'll try one here. I think I can get the right tightness with small washers on the the valve retainer flange.Drado wrote:If you look at the amount of contact between the valve and the diaphragm, there's a lot of it that means more force to make it break away. I think minimizing the surface area of contact- sort of what was done with the umbrella valves and tapered spokes of the wagon wheels - would help.
(remember, this is just a guess though...)
Show us a photo of the first stage, or email it to me. If it's what I think, I have rare New Old Stock high pressure seats for it!TomcatPC wrote:Yes, I know this is an old topic...but I just bought a Voit 40 Fathom Regulator online last night. It is my "entry level" Voit Regulator and I'm guessing that it will need to be worked on before diving. This topic might be of help...or I might have more questions to ask. Looking forward to getting my first Voit, even if it is not an iconic double hose Voit.
