Default 90 degree main gear valve stem

Iím not having any luck finding a replacement main gear innner tube with a 90 degree valve stem. The objective is to be able to air the tires with a valve extension through the well pant.

Anyone find a source?

Carl

Default Why does Vans do this?

I still am in the build process. wings, fuselage, done. Engine hung and up on the wheels "Matco" the valve stems from Vans are straight and miss the axle nut by less then a 1/8 inch. The nose wheel tube was a 90 degree. Why not all three?
