$145 for both 3 valve clusters . possible L.H. project

$145 + shipping

I have, here in the Bay state, two conn 3 valve upright valve clusters without the tubing that I set aside for a project, but it is a way down the road and probably will never need to do it kind of project, so I will offer them here if anyone could use them. One was off a 10j and the other was from a Giant Eb, but other than the period top and bottom caps, and how they did the knuckles at the factory, and the finish, they appear to be the same thing. My plan was to make a 4 piston front action left handed cluster out of these by cutting off all the knuckles and turning the circuts.

With all the ports on the same side, it would be possible to make the cluster 4 piston valves and right or, left-handed, with a new leadpipe. and the .693 or so bore size is pretty close to King 2341...so it would be quite a bit of work, but it would be a good candidate for taking a tuba like a King and making it left-handed with 4 front action pistons.

All of this is just thought...what I have here are a couple of top action valve clusters in old, unrestored, as they were found shape. The valves go up and down. I am sure they could use intensive cleaning and probably plating.

If you are interested, send me a PM
