    I love Power Valves

    My #2 PV dropped and hit the piston 2 weeks ago. I just got the time last night to take it apart and realized that is what happened. Guess I have no choice but to go BB when I fix it. I had been trying to decide who's BB to go with, Lowell or Group K but after seeing this I am definitely going with Group K. Can't wait to get my parts shipped off. I haven't got the cylinders off yet but hopefully I won't need a #2 cylinder.

    Usually not. However, it can cost extra for them to reweld the cylinder up before plating. If it dug deep, expect to pay a few extra dollars.

    I got lucky. The cylinder was not damaged. Fortunately I was idling back to the dock when it locked up. I am shipping my parts to Group K today :P
