I ran across pictures of this neat fix for those that split the cheapo tube stems or have leaks.

Truck stops and big truck shops can also replace the rubber stems. It is expensive,but can save an otherwise useless tube.

That is a great post. I think a similar one was posted before. That is the correct way to install an old valve stem in a new tube, and I have used this method long before I ever saw this post. What I'm wondering is if A&L had Shraeder make up these stems? I wish they could make some for 30X3 and 30X3 1/2 tubes too. Some day the swap meet supply is going to dry up, especially after people find out that the tubes now being supplied are incorrect. Not only are they incorrect, the diameter of the stem is too large too, which throws your wheels out of balance even more!

I've been using used metal stems for clincher tires, but I'm not sure what was originally supplied for Model Ts. For example, I know the stems have to be long enough to clear the wheel and short enough to get the valve cap on under the correct cover, but does anyone know what the correct length should be? Where they all supplied by Schrader?
