Testarossa Tyre Valve

Hi Terry,
one my friend who have a Testarossa dated 1987 need to put a new tyres, he has removed the wheel rims in order to re-paint them and he has new chromium plating on bolts.
His coachbuilder has removed the tyre valves (bolted), I do not have them yet seen how is made, he told me that they have a normal O-ring gasket, is true?
The valve il like a picture attached that I found on web?
If is true is sufficient buy a new o-ring set or is necessary to buy a complete new set of tyre valves ?

Thanks

Fabio

Fabio- Usually on tire valves, the manufacturers make a valve rebuild kit that costs anywhere from $3-15 per valve. The valves on the TR, part number 174166, however, are an updated version and only cost $9.16 here from Ricambi, so likely even less in Italy. Personally, I would just put in all new tire valves at that price.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Thanks Terry,
I thought that they were expensive but at this price sure we buy.
