DSP Inlet Valve Assembly, Pusher Stem, Large
Current Part Number: 0516296
Alternate Part Numbers: 759-379, 0516246a
Fits the Following Pumps
This is the New/Pusher style inlet valve assembly that is included with DSP/Apex pumps listed in the above chart with build dates in late 2006 and 2007 onward. This inlet feature a "Pusher Stem" that allows a user to push/tap the lower ball without having to remove the suction set.
Older model sprayers may have a manual that calls for part number 0516246a. That part does not have a pusher stem and is no longer being manufactured. This part replaces the discontinued 0516246a and is listed on current manuals.
If replacing an Non Pusher Valve with a New Pusher Stem Valve, purchase a compatible Suction Set!
Cleaning the Inlet :
If needed, you can remove the inlet assembly from the sprayer for further cleaning/inspecting. However please avoid taking the inlet apart for cleaning. (Refer to the owner's manual for further instructions; located on page 20 of the latest DSP/Apex owner's manual.)
NO individual parts are available for any of the inlet assemblies. So if you did take the inlet assembly apart for cleaning (which is highly not advised), be very careful to not loose any parts; or you will have to purchase the whole assembly.
