Monster Valve Installation

Tired of airing down and then having to air back up those tires? I am! 40's suck and it takes FOREVER!

Along comes Monster Valves. Now airing down takes about 15 seconds and airing back up takes about 30 seconds! Below is my installation.


The Monster Valve...not for the squeamish, you have to drill a 7/16" hole in your rim. Mess it up and your screwed! Go slow and pay attention.



running Poison Spyder Beadlocks the process is SLOW. Start by removing all 32 screws



Ah sucess!




punch the location you want to drill



drill an 1/8" hole



followed by a 1/4" hole



followed by a 3/8" hole



followed by a 7/16" hole



clean up your mess



You know have a 7/16" hole

Use a 1/4"x18 NPT Tap and very carefully tap your hole. I used an 11mm wrench to turn the tap. Make sure you line your tap up correctly. Use cutting oil or WD40 and slowly begin to tap your threads. You will need to go about 1/2 down the tap and insert the Monster Valve to check the depth. Remove and continue to tap until you have reached the correct length. DONT GO TO FAR! These taps have a taper and you could open the hole up to much!



Once finished you will have a cleanly tapped hole



test fit the Monster Valve



Remove the brass end cap and the red release nut. Use a 9/16" deep well socket to thread the valve into the rim.



verify the depth



remove and apply thread sealant



reinstall the Monster Valve using the 9/16" socket and thread the red release cap back onto the valve




thread on the brass end cap




The finished product. As you can see I placed the Monster Valve directly across from the valve stem. This gives you enough room to place a gauge on the valve stem and air up or down using the Monster Valve.



Reinstall the ring, let the thread sealant stand for at least 15 minutes (I let my set up overnight) and air up!

Killer write-up Jeff!!! I have been eye-balling these for a while now, but the process had me a little sketchy. Now I can see it isnt a big deal. Thanks...

Only good if you have well protected rims (IE beadlocks) but way cool!

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Killer setup, not sure what the exact size of the standard valve is but that looks to be about triple the size.

You will be enjoying a cold one while the rest air up..



What do you use to air up?

You could if you drilled it to a 7/16" side and then tap to the right threads. But the whole intent is to place a clip on gauge on one and air up or down thru the monster valve so you can monitor it as you do.

Powertanks are so fast. I've got a 4-way split air hose and it takes about 30 seconds to fill all 4 to identical pressure from 8 PSI.

I'm sure with 40" tires and those Spyderlocks, you can go a LOT lower than that and it takes a LOT more air to puff em back up.
