Should the Yamaha 631g flugel have piston numbers? I can't find them.
What do you mean by piston numbers? Serial numbers on the pistons, or 1,2,3 on the pistons, etc.
The numbers 1,2,3 on the pistons. Not sure if they were accidentally left off of my instrument, or not stamped on this particular model, or hidden from normal view. Never had a brass instrument without these numbers easily found, making it easy to get the Pistons mixed up when cleaning.
My Roy Benson flugel doesn't have numbers, instead it is both valve slot and valve is designed cleverly well.
Unless I fit them the right way, they don't fit!
My old 631 had dots stamped on the top surface of the valve, where the valve stem screws into the valve. 1 dot for first valve, 2 dots for second valve......etc.
What style valve do you have! I have an older 731 with the metal valve guides, and almost all one piece. Beneath the felts and cork right above the valve are the valve numbers.
I'm too lazy to take my own picture, so do your valves look like this? If so, look under the top cap, cork, and felt. There should be a number on the brass there.
SORRY, can't get picture to up load!
Thanks. I'll check that.
