No but here's a little info on those:
I called Groco & spoke with Jamie P., who is very well versed by the way, I was told that the new valves stems are indeed bronze
not brass, as the recall
picture on the Groco web site states, and according to Jamie that is apparently a typo. They meant brass in color not actually brass stems.
of these valves was not for corrosion
issues, as some have so mistakenly stated on other forums
, but rather because the manufacturing factory changed spec on Groco without telling them! To top that off they then could not guarantee the quality of, or even tell what type of stainless, the stems were made of. According to Groco most of these valves went to a few OEM's most of them in Florida
. My valves were made well after this recall.
They have also according to Jamie radically changed they way they QC vendors and how they QC metalurgy.
Oh, and I'd still rather have the Groco's any day than the failures I've personally had with Marelon.
This failure (photo below) is of a catastrophic nature because the handle actually holds the o-rings in place so when it breaks off, your boat
starts filling with water
, with nowhere to stick a wooden plug!!
