Obviously the 4108 valves are not the same as the 4101 valves because I could find no parts anywhere, even online.

I made some parts that worked but don't remember exactly which ones, it was a while ago.

Try this guy, parts@gmbusguy.com, he had some valves that would work for about $55 but they were different than the originals and may not be the same as yours. He probably has the right ones though.

Have you ever noticed that it doesn't matter which or what dash you have to get under, it still sux!!  Angry
Anyway, here is what it looks like. And the shaft does seem to be a bit wore/sloppy.

There was a bit/lot of black oil under there too.  (go figure)

Sooo, does that look like the creature Dallas?? Does it look like any other valves that I can get??
 
Thanx guys,

  (snip)   I don't how they are worth the hassle to rebuild. (snip) 

And after you rebuild them, you have worn bores, shafts, valves, etc. with nice new o-ring and seals.  That's gonna last a long time, right?Huh  For $25, buy new and save yourself some headaches down the road.

If you can't find it anywhere else NAPA has them - search online for wiper motor control.
Several come up that look like the one in the picture, however they are around $50.

Thanx Dallas. Hopefully I'll get lucky.  Roll Eyes The old "six wheeled tool box" has produced for me before!  Grin  

And you're right, oonrahnjay, for 25 dead presidents, it's a no brainer!!!!!!!! BUT........ that was what was "thought" the price was a couple years ago. I have been around long enough to know NOT to get my hopes up. It was even conjectured that they might not even be able to be FOUND!! So yeah, for 25 beans, I might even buy a third for a spare.  Roll Eyes I might be able to help one of our fellow brethren in the future with it. (case in point - Dallas)

Now, if and when I get these little critters found or fixed, it's back on my back.  Tongue But that's always a good position for screwing up.  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin lolololol
