Snap-In Schrader Valve

Unread postAuthor: Canadian Spudder » Sun Oct 21, 2007 5:07 pm

Hey,
I am going to be making a removable propane meter the injects via schrader valve. The only valves I could find around me were the rubber, snap-in kinds. (http://www.alltiresupply.com/p-44-413.html). Has anybody had any experience mounting these on a cannon?

Thanks

Use a 11/64ths drill bit and by all means drill a straight hole for a good seal.

Yeah they are piss easy to mount in, on mine, i drill a 12mm hole and push the Shrader valve in from the back, and grab some pliers and pull it threw and it pops into place. So basicly, measure they part which sits inline with the plastic or w/e your installing it with (in the picture you linked the C part ), and drill the hole like 1-2mm smaller then that. Hope that helps :wink:
