Easi-Lite Valves - A Field Guide

I bought 100 of these Viton Schrader valves. I'm willing to sell them unmodified if you are in a pinch. I would have to get $2.00 each plus shipping from Canada. Shipping would probably be $2 or $3 per package.

807-3S are what i bought from a Parker Distributor. Keep in mind that for use in an EasiLite they have to be modified. The knob diameter has to be removed from the pin. Make sure you don't shorten the pin in the process. THIS IS IMPORTANT. I WILL SAY IT AGAIN - THIS IS IMPORANT !

I didn't look at that detail very closely when I had it apart Steve. My impression was that it was a loop of wire to hold/insert the packing material. The end appears to be crimped so as to hold the wire and packing in place.
