Need a cheap new solenoid valve for a Power Gear leveling system

Hi,

I have a Power Gear 500546 levelling system.

One of my Solenoid valve coil is dead. We have one for each of the rear leg and one for the front one. Instead of replacing the whole valve with the coil for 188$ I would like to find an aternate part for just the coil.

The original Power Gear valve part number is 500099. Here is a picture:


Here is an image of the coil separated from a valve:



On the end of the valve I use a 22mm wrench to remove the nut and the coil comes freely. I did not remove the valve from the system so it takes only a minute to do.

On the coil it is written: DELTROL Fluid Products 10162876 0999, 12VDC

I measure the hole and it is a 5/8". The lenght of the coil is about 1.5" but I did not take a precise measure.

I found nothing on the internet about this Deltrol coil.

So I searched on eBay and amazon for a "Solenoid Valve coil 12V 5/8" and I find some for about 20 to 30$.

But I don't know what is the wattage required. I see a competitor here say that 18watts is for 3000 psi and 28watts is for 5000 psi.

Does my system has 3000 psi or 5000 psi?

Anybody can help me find a 12v two wires coil replacement part? Anyway, this could happen to you in the future and having a part number in your documentation would be useful.

THE STORY: The coil casing has some very little cracks and I suppose water made its way inside the coil. I had my front legs that would not move. So I swith the front with one of the rear coil and it proved that the front coil was bad. I cut the plug on it and tested it again to see if it was the connector and it is really the coil itself.

Thanks in advance.

Would you add your post to this Power Jack Leveling Discussion after the second page this thread turned into an excellent discussion on power jacks and you information would add to that knowledge base.


Thanks

The Deltrol part number I gave previously is wrong.

The part number is DELTROL Fluid Products 10162-76 0999, 12VDC.

The hole is 5/8" (16mm) and the lenght is 2" ou 50.8mm.

It is a 22 watts coil that takes 1.87A at 12VDC.

Here is the PDF for the specs, click here.

There is a listing on amazon by Deltrol but none are available. See here.

On amazon Deltrol say in the title 22watts but in the description they say 16W. But in my opinion the wattage is really 22watts because it drains 1.87A at 12VDC. P = VI = 12 x 1.87 = 22watts.

On eBay I searched for Solenoid Valve 5/8 12VDC.

I see that Hydraforce has a similar product.

Here is a search string for eBay to find a Hydraforce coil 12VDC 5/8":
Hydraforce (6352012, 6351012, 6355012, 6359412, 4301612, 4301892, 4301862)

Those Hydraforce part number are coils with a 5/8" diameter hole and a 2" hole lenght. The wattage is 20.04 watts at 1.67A.

So if I buy an Hydraforce I will solder the original connector to it.

The Hydraforce 6352012 is 24$ US on amazon.

Do you think this 20w would replace my 22w?

Success

I received it today. There is two wires and you link them to the old connector. Each of the two wires can be reversed and it will still work, no problem.

My jacks works perfectly now. Saved 150$.

So this is what I need for mine, or at least 3 of the 4. I found the exact parts on Amazon for cheap. It looks like many connections broke and corroded. I tried to clean them up, but they're so fragile at this point I broke one myself.

From what I'm understanding in this post, you can just remove the nuton the end and slide the thing off while the valve remains in place, no mess?

Also, if I discover the valves also need replaced, will it leak a lot when they are removed or just a tad.

Thanks.

Yes. Keep track of what wires go to what valves.. Also watch for the o-ring things on the ends of the nuts. They don't seal anything, they are there to hold the nut on.

Just a dribble, clean up with a couple paper towels. Just don't run the pump with the valves removed or you will have a mess..

Release jack solenoid

Follow-up now for the release jack which is different size:

This week while I drove from Montreal to Florida I had another problem with my jacks. Now it is the release jack solenoid that stopped working.

It is smaller size than the 3 other ones. It is a 13mm (1/2") diameter solenoid that we need. The lenght of the body is also important and it is 44mm or 1-3/4".

I have ordered a HY 6302012 from amazon.com. It is same price as on eBay. Total price is $US26$ shipping included. This is a 12V coil for 1/2" holes. Should work. I will post here if it doesn't.
