Re: Valve Stem

That depends on the hole in the tube. If it is not torn you can simply reinstall your valve. If a new tube is needed I highly recommend those made by Blockley, https://www.blockleytyre.com/product/30x3-5-inner-tube

I don't know the route. The fellow I bought my T from told me it was driven to California from New Jersey. Most likely this was in the '30's or '40's.

Re: What should salvage value be?

If you do buy it back don't be afraid of a salvage title. If you want to get rid of the salvage title simply change the engine and apply for a new title with the new engine number on it.

Re: Who uses 30 x 3 clinchers?

Blockley tyres are made in Viet Nam, to Blockley's specifications. If they prove to be of superior quality, and that improvement is starting from a very low base, it is not the Vietnamese source which is the problem. Rather, it is a problem with the US vendors specifications. Perhaps now we will fi...

Allan, I'm also sweating on Blockley tires and tubes being available soon. Getting too old to have to repair flat tires on the side of the road because of blow outs when they are caused by rubbish products. and one has about 1 in 5 chance the tire is damaged resulting in it not being usable again. ...

Even though you bought the tires direct from Blockley, couldn't you have saved some money by purchasing the tubes from Coker, Universal or Lucas?
They only carry the thin tubes. Only Blockley has the thick tubes with the correct type valve stem.

Re: Coker tyre buyout.

Seems to me they are all made in Vietnam and shipped to different vendors. Which tires or “tyres” does Coker actually make? Try Universal or Lucas or that other place if you are in Australia or New Zealand. I bet the tires all come from the same place. I have four recently acquired sets plus a coup...
