Vintage Valve ID Help

I've got three rainbird valves that need replacement diaphrams. Problem is (a familiar one unfortunately) there are no marking to identify the model. The other two (black valves) are functioning but have no idea of their make as well. Any help will be much appreciated!

You may have Hydro-Rain valves with the Rainbird name on them. Repair diaphragms would come by way of Irritrol. You need to photograph a removed diaphragm assembly with a ruler alongside, for us to be certain of what you have.

I does look like the diaphragm assemblies are the Hydro-Rain type (replacement kits including a new bleed screw available from this website) but the solenoid on the valves is not the type Hydro-Rain used, so I can't say with 100-percent certainty just what you have there. Do note that you might just want to replace the valves with new Hunter valves identical to those that are in place already.
