Thanks Rick for this video. I had never looked into the possibility of removing / exchanging the valve cores.


Coincidentally I found another one that needs swapping out today!

The latest YT video upload takes a look at dad's Minor Traveller, junior and I go off into the undergrowth at a former WW2 airfield looking for the remains of a Sunbeam Talbot, and we also pop in to visit friends and their assorted vehicular gems. It's now been embedded onto the Your Classic Cars page on OCC:

HJ has put together a short animated Lego/tin-plate racing car video featuring Homer Simpson competing in a race. I've added it to the tin-plate toy car page.

In case anyone else has an interest in old aircraft (there is an Austin K2 and an old Landy though, for road-vehicle fans), I uploaded a vid taken at the City of Norwich Aviation Museum just now.
