Thanks, Kelly. Trying to help out a friend whose budget probably won't allow for a new one. Was looking for one that might be rebuildable.

I find it rather impressive that the item is priced to the penny.

Wayne,

I have a 2" safety valve, NEW / OLD STOCK - NEVER USED, for sale at $350.00,
shipping included, to continental U. S. via USPS Priority Mail.

While not the 1-1/2" valve you are looking for, it could possibly be bushed down using a
1-1/2" extra strong close nipple and a 2" to 1-1/2" reducing coupling.
Also the set pressure is 100#, this could also probably be change by a qualified valve shop to 200#, it most likely would require a stronger new spring.
A 2" street ell could be placed in the outlet.

Check the pictures for the overall new appearance and condition of this valve.
Note there are no nicks or dings on the body or the threads. All the threads are clean and shiny. The valve proper, the s/s stem and s/s spring are likewise clean and shiny.

Check the badge plate photo for all the pertinent specifications. The valve stands
About 10-3/4" tall.

This is not permissible by ASME/NBIC code.
