I need to replace the air valve on my lawwills, the one which takes the football needle.
I got the old split one out easy enough, but does anyone have any ideas on how to squeeze the new one in past the threads? I've tried spit, teflon lube, and KY jelly, none of which work - it's just too tight to push or twist all the way in.

Any thoughts???

(didn't really try KY :wink: but may nip to Boots later...)
