Check valve removal tool

I was almost sure I saw a check valve removal tool on Ocp but can’t find it for the life of me. Can you guys recommend one? I’d make one if I had a check valve I suppose I could order a spare and build off that. Anyway if any of you have one you like please tell me where to get one thanks Matt

Re: Cleaning a F/A tube with metering rod (long winded)

I just picked up a 1962 200a oiled the leather took the top all off and cleaned the burner and air tube took the generator apart and cleaned it all real good the spring and packing came right out so I could clean everyt...

Brass or alum funnel

Hope everyone is having a good weekend, I’m guessing you can’t buy a metal funnel anymore? The only place I’ve found any was on ebay and I don’t have an account. If anyone has any leads on a brass or alum I would appreciate it. The hole in the 242 takes to much focus to not make a mess. Thanks guys.
