York Monster Eb 2nd valve needed

Post by Doug Elliott »

I recently acquired a 3 valve York Monster Eb, serial #17754 which puts it about 1908. It's in prettty decent shape, but the 2nd valve is bent in around the top port and the tubing in that port has a big crack in it. I can't quite see how either one happened. There's no apparent damage otherwise and the casing looks good, although I haven't measured it.

The leadpipe is badly dented and has been cut and repaired with a standard receiver added, and I'd like to replace the whole leadpipe.

Suggestions from those familiar with this horn?

The valve measures .924 OD and 4.060 long.

Hey Doug,
It would probably be more easy to repair then replace.

The crack could probably be patched, but the OD of the valve is strangely bent inward at the top of the same port. I don't see how that can be repaired, but maybe it doesn't make much difference to the playability?

I just thought somebody who's cannibalized one of these horns probably has some parts lying around...

If anyone can repair it, it would be Dan.
