    I finally just did it. It took about 2 hours and is really simple.
    Get a good valve compression tool and fill the cylinder with rope to
    hold up the valve. Piece of cake !

    Rope? Glad it worked..

    never heard of that.. I myself have always used an aircompressor and a
    fitting to to keep the valvel in place...
