How about I pay shipping to the contiguous 48?

$50.00 and I will mail it to you.

(Sure would like to offer it world-wide, but I am skeptical of the shipping charges, so can't do that...sorry. Dave)

Dave,
As you probably know,your inflator is adaptable to Model T by brazing a 1/4" black coupling to the bottom part of a T plug with good threads,then just screw in a hose adapter. Unhook the hose from the late plug unit and clamp it on the T one. Handy unit to carry on T tours. The down side,you're going to get a slight amount of gasoline inside your innertube.

Steve, why would you get gasoline in the inner tube? Those use compression to run a pump that compresses clean outside air, at least the one that I have does. Dave

It's a sparkplug inflater. You take out a sparkplug,screw the adapter into the plug hole and air-fuel mixture under pressure from the compression stroke is not exploded in the cylinder but is forced through the hose into the tire.

Steve, read the label on the box, "Pumps Only Clean Fresh Air" , no gasoline exhaust, gas or oil. It goes on to explain how it works. Bring the label in on close up and you can read it.

Steve, there is a ball check valve in the device which permits only clean outside air to be pumped into the tire.
No air/gas mixture into the tire....as Dave S. said.
