I agree with Markiemark. A Schrader valve is the standard valve used every car I've ever had, on our motorhome tires, and on the air bags. The bike pump with an attached gauge on the body and a clip-on chuck for a Schrader valve will probably be fifty bucks or so.

Here's such a pump. Needs to have a hose so you can pump standing while the chuck is fastened to the valve.

The Schrader valves on mine have about 1 inch of thread and I can expose more of less on the stem by tightening and loosening the locking nuts. See if you can expose more stem so you can get the chuck down tight.

I think I need a valve similar to what you have. The core valve I have now is not adjustable as far as I know. Once you screw it in and it bottoms out, the stem is to far down and most chucks won't reach it. It's only like that on my inner tires on the rear. The other 4 tires valve stems are just fine.

Oh, by the way, no problem putting air in the air ride valves.

Had the same problem with my air bags. Went to Les Shwabs to get aired up and the guys just screwed on some valve extenders. Problem fixed. And free!

I shipped my bad manifold back to airlift today for rebuild. Got an estimate of @$90 for rebuild. I'll be so glad to have my wireless system up and running again.
