  • Recognize this gasket?





    this gasket/washer came with my new valve, but it does not appear to be accounted for in the parts list.

          that's true, it fits perfectly in the control stop vandal cap, but I don't really see a reason for it to be in there, the "teeth" don't bite into anything. It does not fit or line up with any other inlet or connection in the entire rig.

          I did an online search of all sloan washers and gaskets and found nothing that matches. Hmmm.

            Sorry, I meant the gasket inside the shut-off valve itself...my bad...Im not saying that it, it just looks like it...

              the funny thing is, all the related bracketed parts in the diagram come together in sealed bags. This is the only loose non chrome piece in the box.

                Never bought a Gen 2 series...if and that's a big if, it might be an extra replacement gasket....we'll have to see if some other smarter people can tell us...I have seen gen 2's but haven't worked on any yet....

                  it doesn't look to match any of the replacement parts. I looked through every single sloan flushometer part. Nothing. I am really more curious than anything at this point.

                    Found it! looks like i was right about the vandal cap. Page 4.

                    I assume it is meant to provide enough friction to keep the cap from backing off.

                      I work on sloan lots and also never came across that one yet. Nice to learn something new.

                        I was just fooling around with it, I guess it acts like a compression fitting; when the cap is tight it pushes the rubber to expand and makes it really hard to unscrew by hand.
