Changed the valves and gave it a good clean yesterday
But there is still a hiss from the valves before I put the cap on . Can anyone tell me if this is normal ? If not I'll have a fiddle to make sure I've scrwed them in all the way .
I know my old bombard used to hiss a little until the caps went on , but they were the type the aerotec has on the floor - so not quite the same.
The pump also has a 'setting' on it 1-2-3. I guess to get to the right pressure, but on anything apart from '1' it just hisses like its over pressure even when the tubes are flat. Any ideas on how this works ? Or do I just go with gut feeling and make sure the floor is properly hard ?
Engine hopefully to arrive tail end of the week (assuming the bank sort themselves out and Peter gets the money)
Maybe a maiden voyage Friday or the weekend. Is Friday 13th a bad day for a try out I wonder ?
