How to identify valve type

I have a WeatherMatic Valve with a flow control. It has two issues, one with the solenoid sticking (replaced once already with Model 520) and the other the valve not seating. At this point I am thinking it is best to replace the entire valve. I am having problems identifying the replacement. Is it better to upload a photo or are there identifiers on the valve and where would they be? I know I sound like a novice but I have only worked with 3/4 inch pvc pipe with sprinkers but I guess that is why there is a forum to ask questions.
These would be my obvious choices since it has the valve control.Weathermatic
12024EF-10-H - 1" Valve with Flow Control



Weathermatic
12024EF-15-H - 1-1/2" Valve with Flow Control




Weathermatic
12024EF-20-H - 2" Valve with Flow Control

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

Take your photos to Tinypic or some similar image host, and bring back the "forum code" to copy and paste into the message box. Outside of some horrible solenoid issues, since resolved, I haven't heard a lot against Weathermatic valves.

You got it right the first time. - like I already mentioned, these were always highly regarded valves until the solenoid issues, which were on the square-shaped ones that preceded the round ones in use today.
