What is the exact name for this valve?

It only has 3/8in fittings going into it and 1/8in leaving the valve and I feel my horn setup will be a lot louder if I can find out what the name of it is so I can find 1/2in going in and 1/2in leaving the valve... Would definitely make my P3's much louder!

(No I'm not running Barbed fittings anymore, I learned my lesson. They're all Brass compression fittings)

Thanks guys!

Korey, That won't allow me to control the air going to the P3's... I wanna be able to let air in and out at different rates, so that won't help. That's only got 1 setting, all open or all closed... Know what I mean

Ryan don't post in here if you're going to be a d!ck like that. I'm asking a serious question. That post was just retarded.

I do declare it is called a air horn valve...a control valve to be exact. This is also known as a canooter valve.

HADLEY REPLACEMENT CONTROL VALVE WITH LANYARD FOR DUAL TRUMPET AIR HORNS - CarParts Quality Discount Parts and Accessories

Doesn't say the specs, but it looks to be Hadley and Grover make them...you don't have to be such a d!ck ; )

I asked for the name of the part, not what you call it. Thanks for nothing though.

That's a real post, so thanks for that!

I've been searching for the last 2 hours... Came up with nothing that looks like what I have, let alone anything I could use under the truck to replace what I have now.

True. But the style valve that you have now will probably not flow as much and not be as loud, which is why if I were you I'd just do an electric. But if you must have manual you really only have one good option IMO, and it will have to be mounted in the cab. You can go with a Graham White valve which is what they actually use on trains. Here's the cheapest I've seen one NEW GRAHAM WHITE TRAIN HORN VALVE - eBay (item 110391105104 end time May-23-09 17:49:17 PDT)

Evan is using one for his setup also

That is a monster. I agree with electric. Every vehicle that I have installed or done horns on, we have used electric valving.

Eh i've had problems with friends electric valves leaking... Plus it's less to go wrong. Mechanical valves work everytime I pull them.... Even when it's below freezing out (My buddy's wouldn't work, electric, it was frozen shut)

If I can find a valve like I want in 1/2in it won't flow any less than one of those SMC valves. Same principal.

Plus I hate being "like everbody else".... I'm my own people lol

I can fade in and out with the pull style I have now... Just not as precise as yours...

I don't want electric, and the gram is too big, I don't have any place to put it...

I really just wanna try and find a replacement for what I have now (3/8 in 1/8 out... to 1/2 in 1/2 out)... I may need some help lol

It seems that all of the manual valves are the same. All the ones I have found are not near 1/2...they all replace the Bendix valve that is in most semi trucks from factory.

After a little research. This appears to be the part number for the factory valve on most trucks.

Bendix 228928 HV3

I think it is only 1/4 inch though.

Damnit!!!! I mean that's better than 1/8in but... There HAS to be someone who makes them in 1/2....

I did find this though... If I decide to go electric...

1/2" Valve Train Horn Air Ride Suspension Solenoid:eBay Motors (item 270379823073 end time May-24-09 10:21:08 PDT)

I just don't wanna lose the ability to reach down by the floor on the drivers side and pull up and scare people... That way people don't know where my "button" for the horns are... They just ask what the cord is for... It's way fun pullin up on it!

I'm almost wondering if I can get one of those bendix valves, drill it to 7/16 and tap it to 1/2in NPT thread if it will still yield the same line pressure.....
