Re: Homemade check valve tool

Here you go Doug. Make yourself another rod with a #8x32 thread so you can pull all of the check valves. I don't know how wide you made your tabs on the tool but if you make them .090 to .092 it will also fit about all of the valves. Doug's tool dougs tool.jpg :D :D

When you get passed that and get it all the way out as shown in Andy's photo you can use this locking rod with your Coleman check valve tool and...
