have trouble LF union one pump, any advice?

Postby marroc » Thu Mar 11, 2010 12:07 am

I replaced my LE bladder and i am having trouble getting the hose from the strut bac into the LE with the black cover thingy that covers the valve.... I can get it on with packing tape, but then its hard as hell to get the hose back into the vavle. Anyone have this problem or got any advice? Can i fly it with out the covers or will they pop out?

thanks

which part exactly are you having trouble fitting back on........the black plastic cover that is over the clear valves?
If so; pull it as far through as you can with the clear loop part of the valve, then use something small but not sharp to lift the rest or it up through the hole. once you get the technique its not too hard, but initially it is a serious mission
