Early Crosman Model 101 Resealing, Part 3

Some valve work...

The inlet valve was full of rock hard rubber.

Here are some chunks. It was extremely hard to pry them out.

Almost clean.

Machining the inlet valve seal from urethane.

The assembled inlet valve.

I didn't have any asbestos gasket handy, nor would I really want to, so I used a urethane ring to seal the two halves of the valve assembly. I reassembled but it was leaking from the exhaust valve. I had hoped to reuse the antique seal.

I removed the exhaust valve seal.
