    Riva gas valves

    Just wanna get some feedback on these...if its worth switching over? Advantages? Also, what would be a fair price for a set? That is, if I can find them.

    Gas valves eliminate all the hassles associated with the servo system and dropped pins linkage etc. they are also analog in operation which is a bonus to them. Cost well they aren't cheap and they are almost impossible to find used anymore. Lowell Horning and I think WFO can still get them new. Riva does not sell them any longer.

    Gas valves are very nice, worth every penny.

    Hey if he doesn't want them send me a PM with the price. I just started relocating the servo after the plastic mount grommet broke from using the mount for the tripples.
