H733 auto-inflation system retrofit?

Question for the hurricane experts here - is the auto-inflation system something that can be added onto a 733 with regular valves? If so, how?

To the best of my knowledge you need the intercommunicating valves which cant be added after the tube has been produced. If some one knows different pls chime in so i can learn as well.

autoflate system

Based on my knowledge of the system and Zodiac's description, the auto inflation system does require the Zodiac inter-communicating valves which are not cost effectively retrofitable in a tube.

H733 auto-inflation system retrofit?

733 tubes with HR long valves - no (hurricane)
733 tubes with C7 valves - no (Hurricane/Roses)
733 tubes with I/C valves - yes (Hurricane)
733 tubes made buy wing - don't think so

You need to add a nickel valve base for the inflation hose, and you tubes must have PR valves as they blow @3.5-4 psi and I/C blow at 10.5psi

I do have PR valves on each segment, but my valves are HR, so I guess I'm out of luck...

auto inflation can be retro fitted on any hypalon tube but you would have to send the tube to the UK for me to do it and it would not be cheap
