Thanks Ryan, it was real easy with the deck ring.

So I had a bit of fun with my tubes this weekend. I decided to replace all my old A7 valves with new C7 valves after I gummed up some of the old ones with the internal sealant and trying to replace the internal rubber bits again led to much cursing, a sour attitude, and an abrupt purchase.

Everything went fine Friday until i was screwing together the last valve. I found the internal part (nope didn't forget it) but couldn't get it to slide over to the hole, something was holding it up. so I inflated the tube section next to it to gain a little space and I can hear the internal part bouncing around there IN THE NEXT TUBE SECTION!!!!

What???? I figured I must have a huge tear in the internal baffle that the part fell though. I had the tubes draped over a table so I didn't have to do it on the ground, it must have slid down. Now how the heck am I going to find that tear and get the part back through?? So I inflated the other tube section with the part in it again and waited, it held air for two days, I guess it doesn't have a tear?

Fortunately I had to go out of town for the weekend and couldn't mess with the tubes or do anything stupid with them for two days. Today I got up early and went out and found the correct internal part at the other end of the tube section.

Turns out there is a loose part in the bow section....

But it was in there from somebody else, not me, I never noticed it in there. I guess it's going to stay in there as that section is drum tight and I'm not cutting into it to remove it until it causes a problem.

omg, that sounds frustrating.

I hate when you have a ton to do and suddenly a new project appears out of nowhere to add to the list. Been there done that.

I know the feeling....(1) we were supposed to to Catalina this weekend and (2) there are some little projects I wanted to work on. Won't be able to do either!

Now it looks BIGGER.

only 148 of 160 bolts left to go. And I have to wire wheel another 80 mounting plates. I decided not to make new ones. I'll do that in another 20 years when these fail.
