Re: any way to salvage a leaking CV, not a check ball problem

I've had a couple air stems that would not seal, going round and round moving parts around. I have poor luck cleaning up the tip of the air stem or valve spindle.

From my stoves, I think you will need original, not something off some other stove. Dimensions seem to be critical.
