The valve works really well. Easy to install. It will not hold full braking pressure forever, so chocks are necessary if youre parked more than a few hours.

Installed in my Velocity XL. Its so small that it fits between the side wall of the center keep and the deluxe mount T cover that goes over it. Works perfectly, and definitely worth it!

Q: Is the Matco parking brake valve control spring loaded? Does it come with fittings?

Per the supplier: There is no internal spring action to the valve handle. It will stay in position where ever it is released. There are adapter fittings on the valve that allow connection to 1/8 NPT male thread. There are no fittings for connection to the valve included since they are dependent on the tubing used. All connections to the valve are 1/8 NPT female (so male fitting is needed on tubing side).

Q: How much does this Matco parking brake valve assembly weigh?

The weight of this unit is 0.28 lbs.

Q: Does the lever apply the brakes or do you have to apply brakes with your feet and then pull the lever?

The parking brake lever is applied after the aircraft brakes have been applied.

Q: What is the Matco part number for this parking brake valve?

The Matco part number for this is PV-D.

Q: If the lever was moved into the closed position without applying the brakes first, therefore blocking the flow from the brakes side, but the brakes not actually applied does the valve still allow flow from the peddle to the brakes through the closed valve, in other words is the valve allow flow in one direction when it is closed

The 06-17200 acts as a resettable check valve. When the valve is in the open position, there is free flow in both directions. When the valve is moved to the closed position, there is free flow to the brake but checked flow back and the brake pressure is maintained at whatever the maximum level was applied. Once the valve is moved back to the open positions, free flow in both directions is re-established.

Q: Is the Matco brake parking valve (part # 06-17200) compatible with mineral hydraulic oil?

Mil-H-5606 hydraulic fluid, which is mineral based, is recommended.

Q: Do you have a rebuild kit for your part # 06-17200, a Matco parking brake valve? A paper that came with the valve has Matco numbers for O rings. MSC2-006, MSC2-010, and MSC2-904. If you dont have them, where can I get them?

Yes, we can special order a rebuild kit for P/N# 06-17200. This rebuild kit will include 8 o-rings, 2 pop it valves and 2 springs. Please contact sales for price, lead time, and ordering.

Q: Can the Matco Parking Brake Valve lever be installed on either side of the valve?

The lever can be adjusted for custom installation. You can review the installation instructions in the documents tab.

Q: What is the distance between the .193 hole center and valve axis?

1.5" center to center.
