i have a leak on a tire valve on a walkbehind. are they easy to replace? how do you replace them?
Valve stem removal tool...
Any of these work fine, though I have one that actually has a screwdriver type handle on it. You can find anything like this at just about any store.
And if its the rubber valve that is in the rim that is leaking...the outer part...with out buying a fair price tool....I would just go to a tire dealer and have it replaced for a few bux
what you do is break the tire off the bead( leave tire on rim) take a knife and cut the part of the stem off that is inside tire to remove, place new stem into hole, use "T" shaped tool pictured above, screw it onto threads of stem, make a loop of small rope and loop it under the arm of the tool, pull on the rope and it will pop into place.
thanks for the info. i'll see what happens over the weekend
