I was called out to a customer who had a Morgan plus4, he had a slow puncture and had been to a local garage to have it fixed, they were unable to find the cause, and sent him away. By the next week the tyre was flat again, he called out Hometyre, and I went to check it out. The car had nice modern wire wheels, these are sealed inside and run on normal tubeless tyres as the spokes don't go right through. I took the wheel off, pumped it up and checked it out with a puncture liquid. There was no damage to the tyre, so the next check was around the rim , looking for corrosion. This was also OK, so finally I checked the valve. This wheel has steel valves bolted in, it took a while to show the problem but the seal where the valve is bolted in was leaking. I removed the tyre, and took out the valve, checked the seals, cleaned it all up and replaced the valve, adding a liquid sealer to ensure a good seal. I then put the tyre back on, inflated it to the correct pressure and re-balanced the wheel, before putting it back on the car. Result... One sealed tyre and one happy customer.
