    Would having a non "standard" exhaust valve bother anyone? I'd try one for myself first of course. Assuming SP is right the only difference will be colour.

    Is it any different than the G260?

    Yes, they are not interchangeable with a G260. It seems the G250HP valve is the same size as a G250V just clear in colour as opposed to blue.

    On second thoughts the G250V valve is a fraction too big for a G250 and occasionally gets hung up as I found out. It's my understanding a G250HP case is almost identical to a G250, that being said the G250HP valve might just be a tad smaller, from memory not enough to cause an issue on a G250V. Now I'm curious and want to check for myself.

    Now the hunt is on, being told I can't get the G250V exhaust valves makes it my new mission to get them. The fun is in the chase as a friend once told me @lowviz

    I took exhaust valves from G250HP and G250, measured and then pressed them together along the outside edges. Visually they appear to be identical size to me. Now I am off to check prices on digital calipers, squinting at mm marks on a ruler is a pain.

    Considering SP had a campaign to convert G250ies (the ones with CE stamped on them) to G250HP, I would say are the same. Pre CE stamped cases were not convertible.

    Edit: The "standard" G250 (both CE and pre-CE) and HP shared the same exhaust valve p/n 11.250.103 The 250V exhaust valve part number is 11.261.103. Oddly, the 260 also has an 11.250.103

    I'm almost positive the G250HP and G250 exhaust valves is the same size and a fraction smaller than a G250V.

    You are right my schematics show G250HP and G260 as having same exhaust valve 11.250.103. I just checked my G260 and it's exhaust valve is also clear.

    I'm gonna go with a G250V won't fit a G250/HP as it's about a mm larger in diameter and catches on the sides of the case, I know this because I tried it.

    I'm going with a G250/HP valve will fit a G250V as it's only about a mm smaller in diameter. Im going to measure the case opening on a G250 and a G250V.

    Added: it's probably less than a mm as it only occasionally catches, just a fraction too big.

    I'll order one and have a play a cross the three models G250/G250V/G260.

    Ok, going to order parts for 2x G250Vs with HP/G260 exhaust valves to see if it works, I'm 99.999% sure it will.

    Assuming no other G250V parts come back as NLA I'll check in the new year to see if people would be bothered by a non standard exhaust valve, if people aren't bothered and there's interest I'll do a limited run.

    Not comfortable selling with a substitute exhaust valve until I've tried it first.
