Hello,
i recently completly deflate some parts of my tube to put a new anchor box on my ribcraft.
One valve still in deflating position, air is coming out of the valve after inflating the tube, is there anything to do to correct this?

prod the end of something blunt down the valve, e.g wooden spoon handle a few times & try a snort of silicone spray

may of these valves have a 90 degree twist to lock the insert stem in the free flow position, give the stem a a push and twist see if its stuck there?

Thank you all for your advice, i finally put a bit of white vinegar in the middle of the valve and a drop of WD40, i thought there may be some salt on the valve.
And now it works normally ; )
