In the embodiment of the invention illustrated

3 may not all be of exactly the same axial thick
ness which may result from the usual dimensional
differences which occur in commercial produc

the same location on seats 6. Therefore, if nozzle
tips 2| were employed having recesses 21 all de
signed to have the same depth, the extent of open
ing of the valve might vary among different
nozzles. To insure that such extent of opening
will be the same for all nozzles, I provide nozzle
'tips 2| having recesses 21 of varying depths; and
