Power Tanks Monster Valves

Posted in How To on September 1, 2009

You may think that your standard valve stems are good enough for your wheels... that is until you see a Monster Valve in action.

We installed a set into a pair of Walker Evans beadlock wheels, and instead of drilling out the preexisting valve stem hole, we left the standard valve stem and drilled a new hole for the Monster Valve. Why? Well, the Monster Valves have a much larger body that standard inflation chucks and pressure gauges will not fit. Leaving the standard valve stem allows you to still fill up your tires at a gas station if you don't have your Monster Valve inflation chuck with you.

How fast do these work? We were able to deflate a 42-inch tire from 22 psi to 10 psi in 13 seconds. We were also able to fill a 42-inch tire from 0 psi to 22 psi in 22 seconds with a standard air source and the Monster Valve inflator chuck. That's 1 pound per second!
