Richdel 216PR Solenoid Valve Parts

Guys,
I am looking for a replacement cover for a Richdel 216PR. Is is possible or too old? The threads for solenoid are stripped. Maybe a solenoid also. The Richdel is black and 10 screws hold cover on.

Thanks

Mike

Valve bonnets are not commonly stocked as repair items. Here is your valve.

Here's a hydraulic 216. I don't know if the solenoid will go in there or not. Boots might know.

RE: Richdel 216PR Solenoid Valve Parts


Further to post below.

I've just bought a replacement solenoid for my RICHDEL 216PR with a P/N R811-24VACG which I was assured would fit the 'old' Richdel valve.

On close inspection the thread on the new solenoid is finer than the original burnt out solenoid.

Does anyone have a source for a solenoid with the the original course thread??

any Richdel valve used a standard solenoid denoted by the thread size "3/4 x 20" - that means 20 threads per inch

You might be looking at a manual-operation piece that is threaded on the old solenoid, if you see coarser threads.
