Delrin valve options, are there any?

I've searched the net and haven't seen anything at all. Am I inept or chasing a unicorn?

Are you looking for IC valve inserts + caps for your old Commando?
Or something else?

Both boats I own have Delrin valves and nether have anyway to vent in case of over pressure like the newer models. My dream insert would allow filling, discharge, over pressure protection and an easy way to check pressure with a gauge.

Also, I don't really know what a IC valve insert is....

That C5 in the sun really heats up on the trailer so it got me thinking.

In terms of PSI how much of an increase is possible from full sun exposure? Is this a valid concern?

The big chrome thing that you can spin is an IC valve. Zodiac innovation. It allows you to fill two chambers from one point. You can spin to select A, B, A+B, or none.

To deflate, you unscrew the cap and you unscrew the insert.

The inserts and caps are made of either delrin or nickel-plates brass.

If properly adjusted and lubricated, the IC valve will act as an over pressure valve. Pull outward on the chromed flywheel and you'll see what I mean.

Oh I see now. I know the valves you mean but I dont have those. I have the no frills black plastic insert with cap.

Your valve assembly isn't like this?



Ps, if anyone is curious, this is the inside. The red hose penetrates the baffle and goes to the other chamber. Ripped out of a junk MK3 GR.

That is an I/ c valve from many years ago. They did make them with a plastic flywheel which yours appears to have. Valves probably need rebuilding but do have the pressure relief built in.

Looks like an old corroded IC valve to me.

Can you unscrew the insert and get a picture inside the valve?

First time I looked down that valve is when the flash went off.....

So these valves release pressure as well? These pics are from my 1970 GR MK11 but the C5 has them as well.
