Bump for some nice big detailed pics for the people who inquired. All slides move and all knuckles are fine. This is the model Kanstul copied for their Eb York line...

Took this to tabor yesterday and he found that when this york was converted to a longer tuning slide this knuckle didn't completely reach the valves. There was a big opening. He fixed it with york parts and put a new knuckle. Plays amazing now! No longer for sale.

Excellent! So effectively, there was a huge leak at that location?

Yeah a giant old leak. I thought it was the valves! Granted the valves arent great, but the sound is so much more responsive and pleasing. A great york 6/4 eb tuba is now my quartet horn.
