They don't make 'em like that no more.

Lovely. The absence of double yellows gives a timeless feel to the Volvo's setting.

Haven't been over there Ray!

I noticed this evening that both front tyres were looking soft, the o/s in particular. A quick test showed that both valve cores had a slight leak, so I replaced them both with NOS Schrader replacements.

I carry a set of 4 schrader valves with me in the P38. Not so much for the tyres,,,but in case the air suspension electronics packs up. The idea is that each air bag can be pumped up manually. Wink

I ended up chucking some NOS Schrader cores as they proved unreliable, I suspect the seals harden with age, I'd keep an eye on the ones you replaced.
New cores are widely available and very cheap.
