We are working on an E and J carbide generator valve, basically need to see some close up photos of the valve on the top tank. The one on the outside, setting on the rim.
Need a view of the spring and the handle part.

Thanks ahead of time.

Herb

Can anyone explain the whole on the side of the valve? It looks like a plug underneath that hole.
Does that hole drain the water?
I have one of these that needs restoration and need to understand how they work.

Thanks

Herb

Herb-
When the valve is in the ON position (down) it lets the water in the upper tank drip onto the calcium carbide crystals in the lower tank.

When the valve is in the OFF position (shown) it closes off the water drip and opens a vent (hole shown) from the lower tank. The remaining acetylene gas takes the path of least resistance and vents out the hole in the side of the valve assembly.

I hope this helps.

Do you have the valve assembly, or need pictures of the valve?

I have the pictures that Phil has so graciously put on this thread.
I need the valve. I have a friend who will make one, and Andrew Brand has given me some dimensions od the body but need to see the inner workings of the tapered spinner part. What do you call the part with the handle?

Thanks

Herb

Herb-
Do these help?


Here is the valve, screw, spring and washer.


This is the off position and venting to the outside hole.


This is the ON position where the water goes down. The water hole is smaller than the vent hole.

I'll send you some other photos directly.
