I got the Asco 8210G15 valves. I bought mine new old stock from an Ebay store for $72 each. Mine are two way 1/2 inch valves.

The one you have are three way 3/8th inch valves. See EDIT below. I don't really understand how a three way valve works but I'm sure someone will enlighten me. Which way does the flow go? From 1 to 2 or from 2 to 1? If the former, then it might support an ignition pilot burner, but if the latter, then I presume it is a mixing valve.

Some 8316Gxx info I found says it requires a 10 PSI minimum operating differential. Not sure what that means either.

EDIT

I don't think this type of valve is what you want based on this description of 3 way valve operation.

They look good to me, but I'm not sure what you want to do with them. There are many ASCO valves.

Those are exactly the same ones that colplink used on his original Brutus Ten. Very good valves. I looked for them, but couldn't find them for a good price. All the ones I could find were like $300 plus dollars each. They are stainless.

Now, you don't need stainless for a gas valve. The 8210G15 I got is exactly the same valve but in brass. Even so, the 8210G37 has extreme cool factor.

I'm not very original. I bought the exact ones listed in the 2007 November BYO article about Lonnie MacAllister's Brutus Ten ... The Love TS EW-93520-00. I bought them from Cole Parmer at that link there. Check out the reviews at the bottom of the page. All from brewers, and probably all because of the Brutus Ten.

Mine are not wired up yet because I haven't gotten to that part of my build. I'm still working on the stand, but it is almost done.

You might want to pass on the ASCO 8316 models as they are a 3 way and need at least 5 PSI differential to operate as they are a pilot operated type valve. Be careful with seat materials as Viton and teflon are normally used with hydrocarbons.
