Both these valves came off the same bus they were on the left and right rear. The port sizes R different 1 is 3/8 openings the other is 1/2in. Same part #s on both of them. Never saw or knew of this. Anybody ever encounter this before. Very weird. The last picture is my "Norgren" vice it works very well.124331243412435

Hi Joe. Does the 1/2 control more or is it in line before the 3/8 Norgren.

NO not at all. The replacements R all 1/2 in ports as R all Ive ever seen. The one I pulled off the drivers side with the 3/8ths ports required getting the fittings right to install the replacement. Now its happy.

What a surprise to buy the exact part number only to find it's not a drop in replacement. Most of us would expect the part number to specify fit and function.

Yet another leasoned learned. Thanks for sharing.

Really like the vice Joe!

Just replaced leaking push n lock fittings in my Norgrens, they were all 3/8 pipe.

If some xl owners saw the location of the norgrens on your h they would be jealous. When u r soaping for leaks be sure to spray the entire body of the valve sometimes there will be a leak at the flange for the 2 ends. Also spray the short tail on the smaller 2 position that's its exhaust port and a potential leak point. On the h it is upstde down and the tail is pointing up and easy to do. Your work spot is world class gotta help a bit.
