Just add one diode to the suspension ECU output, instead of the two for later H2 cars.
Although only one EV, the arrangement is the same, with a working reverse diode to protect the ECU output, and ensure proper EV pull- and hold-in.
A single 400V 6A diode will be more than adequate (and not too miniature). Connect diode stripe to ECU output, other end (anode) to a good Gnd.
I wasn't aware that Hydractive 1 electrovalves suffer from diode failures. I've never heard of someone fitting a diode.

No, nor me. However, as they work on the same basis...

I was assuming there is one in H1 EVs.
No diode shown in the H1 (single EV, #433) documents I have, although it is clearly shown in H2 docs (eg the B7 Training document).
Possible that the necessary diode resides in the ECU?
Guess that John might know for sure.

The diode embedded in H2 EVs is extremely tiny.
Maybe H1 was more durably provided in this respect.

That die looks too small for the thread.

It does. The pipe olive is always smaller in diameter than the thread, so it can pass to the bottom of the bore.

That pipe nut size is missing from Pliaedes list given earlier.
The pipe is 10mm so I will check the nut on one and add the size here.

I still have the taps in the shed from when I converted some non hydractiive strut tops, Corbin picture is too small.
