    Default Sherwood Valve Plugs Needed

    Saw someone else posting on how they needed plugs for an out of manufacture manifold, and I thought I would try.

    I've got a set of doubles with an old Sherwood 300bar manifold on them. It's the older style, I can't remember what it's called - it's not a captured o-ring, it's a ______. The term is failing me now...

    Anyway! Before I buy new left & right hand valves for the tanks for my sidemount setup, I thought I would try and see if anyone around here would happen to have any plugs for a manifold of that type laying around. I would be forever grateful to the seller!

    Every 300BAR Sherwood manifold I've seen is the captured o-ring type. Also, I've never seen plugs for these valves. I don't think they were ever made.

    You aren't talking about the old Sherwood dual yoke valve are you? They weren't 300 bar, and had no way to plug them.

    A picture might help.

    I went out to my garage to take a picture, and then remembered my doubles are at the dive shop...doh! I'll get a picture on Monday - thanks for the help.

    I could try the cork - any idea how many layers of tape you need to be rated to 3500 PSI?

    I figure if all else fails I can just cram a plug of JB Weld into the ends or soemthing like that...heh.
