Achilles su series air valve repair
Dont know if i am ham fisted, or unlucky but broke 2 air valves whilst tightening.
Which now that i have pulled them apart i realise tightening excessively is pointless as they seal off well before the screw bottoms out.
Very expensive to replace, like between $60 -80 AUD
Ordered 2 from the USA, took so long to get here i managed to come up with a way of repairing them which has worked out perfectly
2 stainless washers,bolt to suit valve head thread.
drill 1/8 inch holes in the washers and assemble.
