I remember Bug Catcher, or Don't let this pin ruin your day

As our bullets are now aging, I would like to remind everyone about the pin that holds the decompressor valve from falling into the cylinder. Remember Bug Catchers post on it? I recently changed mine as it was about one third gone. It's easily done by holding down the spring with one hand and following out the old one with a new one. Not having the right pin, I had a cotter pin of the right size and will keep an eye on it until I find or make the right pin. But you can still use that method to check its condition and put it right back in. Just a heads up, on what i think could be a major disaster if left unloved. Cheers..

This was some years ago. But her decomp valve fell into her cyl while trying to start. A load of good luck there. She pulled the decomp and fished the valve out with a magnet, (i think) and all was well. Hate to think if it happened while running.
