There was a modification in 1972 on the 3" and 4" size. To be sure which style you have, the serial number is needed to order some repair parts. If the serial number is after 5231063 you have the new style. This design utilizes a lead weight loaded swing check design. Seats are replaceable and a seat removal tool is needed to replace the seats. Internal hardware parts are mostly made of bronze.
