    Our 1978 attack truck has a waterous two stage with waterous valves. It has been historically a B to work on them. We had another go bad last year and we just dead ended the line rather than put more cash and pain into what is now a very heavy brush truck.. I know this did not help but I feel your pain.

    I've got 2 Peaches, and both of them have Akron valves all around.

    As a disclaimer, I've never seen a Waterous valve installed on any of my rigs, even dating back to 1982. So yeah, I learned something new.... again.

    Correct. For many, many years Pierce would order Waterous pumps with Waterous valves for the side 2-1/2" discharges. The rack and pinion valve handle saved them time rodding them and provided smooth and straight actuation. That may have changed when they started selling Hale pumps in addition to Waterous.
    We have a 98 with a Waterous pump and side discharge valves.

    More than likely the valve isn't a waterous valve. More than likely, it is either an Akron Brass valve or an Elkhart valve. Since your referring to a 2.5" valve, I'll assume your talking about a discharge ball valve. If so, I'm including 2 links for how to rebuild the valve. One will be from Akron, the other from Elkhart. Both are very similar. If you need some tips, let me know.
