Dump Valve WM147P
 
Those little screens on the pilot valves are a perfect place for a mud-dauber nest. You'll have to get underneath and check. If the air can not exhaust- they will come down very slowly.

Shane,i took apart one of those valves and the screen on the bottom is a vent for the diaphragm,the discharge holes that let the air dump out of the bags are higher up on the housing and around the outside,they have a horse hair filter inside the housing which surely can get plugged up and make the release slow.


All those years of using soapy water on the screen to check for leaks!
And the leaks would be higher up.

Thanks... that is great to know. I always thought it came out the bottom. For those of you who are "newbies" with these valves- the small holes Randy is referencing are just below the threaded port on top of this valve-

Williams Controls has a repair kit for these valves.
Does anyone have experience?? with the rebuild kit.

I am replacing the haldex HCV valves on our FC and considering replacement of the Williams dump valves at the same time. They sure seem to be proud of the dump valves. I am getting prices of up to $200.00 ea for them. Got a good price on the Haldex valves from findit parts on line. They arrived today.
Haven't been able to find rebuild kits or even the part number of kits for the dump valves anywhere.
Any and all info on the dump valves would be a great help. Mine are slow and also erratic in operation.
Thanks, Fred

Found these on ebay a while ago, still not up on the high priority list.
About a dozen parts. The circular filter Randy spoke of is in the lower left corner.
