    Default Bassett T valve question

    Had water coming out of the headers at idle yesterday, water pouring out of the weep holes, etc. Figured the spring broke, so I took it apart to replace it and turns out the spring and ball were OK. The T valve is pretty old and is pretty corroded on the inside. Question is can the T valve fail like this with extensive corrosion or crap in the valve or is something else likely going on here.

    My old one crapped out, it was very corroded.

    Make sure your' water dump from engine is open. If all the exit water is going through the T it will overload it?

    If it is made of more than one kind of metal, it WILL corrode, but only when wet.
    Galvanic corrosion.

    They are nothing more the check valves. If the seat the ball seats against is corroded the valve will leak.

    Well guys, no surprise here, but changing out the T-valve solved the problem. Took it out today and plumbing is fine. Thanks for all of your posts guys.

    I sell the Bassett T valve only , because it is All stainless. The aluminum versions corrode much quicker and cause problems. The Bassett valve is more expensive, but worth it. Jim
