I was having difficulty inflating my tubulars today so I put a valve extender on and tried that. Somehow I put too much force on the valve and broke it off. Anyway to fix this?

Is it a 2 piece valve? Can you unscrew the broken part?

Otherwise, a tube transplant. Lots and lots of stitching. Not worth it except to be able to say you've done it.

The valve isn't threaded. The valve stem, which is integrated, snapped in half. I am guessing that any repair will require some work. I am going to move on. Thanks for the suggestion.
