Isn't that how HIV / AIDS got out to Hoollywoood, in the back of a Rock k.Hudson valve?

I think it had the fake woody side panels, though. And some Doris Day camouflage....

And this is where the true root of the problem lies, that's a new style "improved" valve with a single by-pass, they're junk, probably designed by the same commie pinkos that ruined the gas can.

Always make sure to get a quality double bypass unit, you can still find them online...

I had no luck finding one online, the only way I got my hands on one was to go to the largest supply house locally and ask in person. After asking most of the young guys they looked at me like I was a idiot, luckily the senior manager helped me out. I suggest everyone else do the same.
