"Can a 1/4"" hole be drilled in order to use this as a test gate. Or do you have test gates available?"

Jeff, I think i have a better idea, why not purchase a Style 154, 2.5"" Threaded Cap with the Gauge (0-300 Lbs), and a petcock to release the pressure, and screw that on to the hydrant, or if you have a style 281 Aluminum Hydrant Gate Valve, you can do the same thing and screw the cap on to your valve. I did check to see if there were any test gates out there and didn't find any, Red Head, TFT, Akron, and Kochek none offered them.

"Do you carry or can you get a rubber rebuild kit for a 2 1/2"" red head aluminum gate valve style 281"

Hi Jason, sorry we do not and Red Head doesn't offer a kit.
