Clacking Valves? Change the Felt.

Someone sent me a note asking for a video on how to take apart and put your valves back together, and it seemed like a good opportunity to talk about replacing the felt, too. Something I didn’t put in the video is that when you wash your valves, try not to get the felt wet, or it will compress more quickly (if it ever dries out).

Hope you find this helpful.
