becuase i couldnt find a threaded schrader and prestas have threads all the way down so i just got an adapter.

UPDATE:Pics and video of spring activated ball valve
The white piece of pipe has holes in it to let the air release as soon as the valve opens

wow, VERY nice. I like the spring activated ball valve, paint,ect. did you tap all those screws? does it leak around there?
EDIT: that reducer on the chamber looks weird. what is that ridge on it for?

for a start theyre self tapping and i put a neoprene disk thing around the edge to make sure.the end cap and tee are rigid because i couldnt find a 80mm pressure pipe(to join the two on the outside)and i couldnt get a 90-80mm reducer as the tee I.D is 90mm but it slowly turns into 80mm.
so i used a metal grinder :oops: and grinded the shit outta the pipe about 2mm of the 7mm so now the thickness is 5mm and 100mm pipe fits over perfect and becuase its slightly rigid i used that neoprene stuff around the edges.

p.s i like the spring thing as well i doubt it does anything its just way cooler to fire and makes it easier.
