Thanks Mac. Have you used this Tube? As I mentioned before, I have found many tubes with TR87 valves, but they are not aligned on the inner radius, thus to not line up with the valve stem hole on the wheel. I have sent this question to the seller, as best as I can phrase it. There is likely a proper technical term for valve location on the tube.

Could you buy an easily obtained tube you like a drill a new hole? Use a patch on the other hole or JB weld it up and sand it down.

A customer with our RAF Upgrade of mast/rotorhead/4-way Air-Trim/Sport Rotor recently replaced his mains wheel tubes/tires, which also had rim centerline valve stem holes:

AERO CLASSIC INNER TUBE 15-600X6 WITH 90 DEG STEM

AZUSA TIRE 15-600X6 4PLY

Hope this is a solution for you!

That orphan only once said "Thanks". Stress? Bad orphanage (hence manners)? Won us ("The Rotary Forum") in @#$% Lottery and forgot to tell us that now we owe him?:(

Just wonder what kind of inner tube was used on this "marvel" of our (more or less) youth
