  • B-7 Leafield Raft Valve

    Q:

    I have a leaking valve on the 'inner' tube on a Tinker Dinghy with B-7 valves. Are these valves difficult to replace, any tricks that I should be using? Thanks

      A:

      Hey I am unfamiliar with your craft, but I wonder if the valves are similar to the Leafield B-7 valves used by Aire. The inner part of this valve is replaceable, and thankfully quite inexpensive. Here's a professional how-to video: https://www.google.com/search?q=B-7+valves&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a.

      Haven't dealt with a Tinker Dinghy before, but did a valve replacement on
      an Aire Lynx tandem with no issues having never done similar before.

      A:

      Jim, as you're probably aware, the working parts of the valve are in the inside piece of the valve. It's possible you have crud in the valve seat that preventing a good seal. You can reach down inside the valve with something flexible like a pipe cleaner to sweep that area clean. Or, you remove the outer piece and work on the seal through the tube opening. There is a repair kit for the B7, Item # 1483.2. Using it is a bit like building a model ship in a bottle, but it's doable. If you need to replace the whole inner piece, this video shows how it's done - http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/Video_Library.asp?vid=391&group=20&loadvid=1 - Give us a call, 800.635.5202, for further help.
