I just soldered and shrink warped the ones I got. The wiring works either way. +/- doesn't matter.

So let say I find a solenoid that AC 110 or AC 120 that prewire with the DIN, 1/8 - 2 ports, would that work?

Why the work? There is like.. a million solenoid out there, beside the build quality, would any solenoid work? I don't see why not?

Sure, it also needs to be 2-way, normally closed and rated for a continuous duty cycle (important).

I just found the thread.

The solenoid valve chase, after Parker H3L
lucky, didn't know that the seller still had them, or you bought it in Dec, grabbed the last two?

besides the right voltage and the connection port type, the most important of all, make sure the power consumption is low, or it will burn your hand and the heat will shorten the life of that solenoid.

if not be able to find a 4 watts or below, let me know, there are some high quality 6 watts that doesn't burn.

^ I'm still in search for that solenoid, was looking for one that has a DIN LED.

Anywhooo,

I decided to buy the brass CGA320 for 10 bucks, I heard the price wrong and it's actually 30 + 20 for the nickel plated ones. Unless you guys have a better source for 2inch Chrome or Nickel plated, I'm all ears.

You should just spend to $30, and get the one from victor as it is the 2" version. I started off by getting the brass for $10, only to spend more money to upgrade later - why not when you are trying to build something the way you want it to look. I mean you tank is only going to cost $20 a year or whatever depending on the size you have. So what's an extra one time purchase of $20 in the beggining?

Wait what? Where do you get both of those for 30 bucks? Is it stainless steel or is it nickel plated chrome?

I think I might need more than 2 inches, more like 2.5 inches.

Chrome is $11+$11
SS is $24+$24

SS is 2 inches, chrome probably is too.

^ Thanks!

Does it matter if the inlet already has a built in filter? What length do you guys usually put on, 2inch right? My gauges are kind of big, would 2inch be enough?

You're probably gonna want the 2 1/2" nipple. The extra filter is a good thing.
