    Sporlan A8 valve

    Are there any O rings inside that need replacing when converting from R-22 to an HFC?

    They didn’t used to make a complete rebuild kit with all internals and the 3 or 4 kits to completely rebuild was more than the valve
    Honeywell you can buy better but you cant pay more

    I told my wife when i die to sell my fishing stuff for what its worth not what i told her i paid for it

    Has Sporlan changed their web address? I get an "Account Suspended" message at www.sporlanonline.com ???

    Anyway, they used to have a listing for the parts which needed to be changed for a POE retrofit that covered all of their products.

    Here's a link to Sporlan's parts catalog listing kits needed for refrigerant retrofits. (See p.6 for Flo-Con A8 valves):

    I finally found the parts catalog I was looking for. I hate Parker's website for finding anything. I suspect it won't be long until they drop the Sporlan name altogether.

    Wow, this is great! Will be very useful for my next conversion.
