We have brought V1 into line with the other valves with the ‘OFF’ position at 6 O’ clock, the new smooth selector and a reduced weight/height.
We may make a new base for V1 to bring the input lines parallel and under 2″ wide- much like V6. Let me know if this reduced installation width interests you.
Currently we call it V7 but have not yet committed to make it.
Our nice new -6 banjos allow the feeds to come in from the sides as usual, or up from below to use the minimum width.
If you use the new 55mm diameter selector plate this option will offer a very small footprint.
