Tusk and Motion Pro valve stem pullers
« on: July 31, 2014, 12:10:46 pm »
Rusty this might belong in a tool category that I didn't locate.
A valve stem puller is designed to be a dual purpose tool or so I thought.  My departed Motion Pro tool worked fine for me for a short while.  It removes the core and pulls the valve stem through the rim.  The Tusk Valve Stem Puller is a single purpose tool.  The end that is used to remove the core, at least on the one that I bought, is not wide or deep enough to remove the core. Once the core is removed it will screw into the valve stem however.  Make sure you include a proper core removing tool in your kit just incase you need to mess with a tube.  I now have one in the form of a valve cap.
Bye the way the Motion Pro tool had a longer cable than the Tusk which is a good thing.  The downside was it was designed as a two piece head and always unscrewed itself due to vibration causing that small piece to get lost in the tool bag.  Also the cable on the Motion Pro frayed, painfully drew blood, and was thrown away.  Why is it so difficult to manufacture a simple tool perform the intended task and last for more than a few months?

It is the information that I was looking at the ground fit.
