    i would say so too. the handle would be a lever type that uses a nut to attach with. this valve by watts is a screw.

    i do have newer watts valves, but they are "csa" rated now.

    dog, to answer your question. the valve is part of an ongoing investigation that my friend is involed in. that's why he can't get anymore pictures of it at this time. if he allows me, i can give more details. but for now that's all i can say.

    ps. has nothing to do with me, just trying to help him out.

    thanks.

    good job pipebursting and mark

            do you have a brand name? what store is it at?

            please don't go out and buy it. a picture is all that's needed to see if it is a decent match. if it looks good, i will get you in contact with my friend.

            thank's

            ps. now this is starting to sound a little spooky or illegal

              Not savey enough to send pictures yet But After looking under handle it looks nothing like your photo. however a jomar valve ips looks much like the top portion of the valvae you have pictured body of valve close but not exact..
              Let me guess some ones getting sued for installing jomar valve for gas stop.

                      Sounds like you have hit all the popular makes with no luck so far. I was thinking of Lunkenheimeras a possible manufacturer but I don't think they made ball valves for gas service. I only remember plug cocks for gas service fromLunkenheimer in the smaller sizes.It does look similar to a ball valve they made back in the 70s and 80s, but that was not for gas.
