    I am having a problem trying to inflate my right rear tire. Upon inspection the stem looks fine and all the other tires seem to inflate. But when I place the inflator nozzle on the stem it does nothing. I am able to take air out of the tire. But I cant put any in. Has this happen to anyone before? Please help!

    My guess would be a bad stem?

    Yep, you probably have a stem that isn't sealing properly for one reason or another. Blast it clean with compressed air and give it a small dose of 3 in 1 oil (drop or two) and work the valve a few times. If this doesn't rememdy it, replace the valve. Use your dust caps too.

    Why do people keep calling it a Bronco!!!!! [​IMG]
