I had the same problem with my '50 Custom when I had Diamond Back tubeless radials installed. I bought 4 stems at NAPA that extend two inches from the rim including the cap. I paid $3.11 in 2009 for a set of four.


JD, do you still have the part number for that by any chance? I'm hunting for a 22nd Series Custom and it would be useful to know once I get mine.

I was sent these by the tire supplier for the radials going on a 55 at the time. They were wrong for those rims. Did Packard have two sizes in 55? A running change ? They have an Argo # on bottom and a tr#. someone in an above post mentioned 5/8 or .625 size hole. What are the exact hole sizes because these measured with a dial caliper seem to be .590 at the sealing surface and would be loose in that hole. Is I understand it- tubeless stems need to be lubed up and pulled in the hole with a snug fit to create the seal. These are about 1 inch sealing surface to tip. I would donate to anyone who would pay shipping here in the US. I am not able to ship outside the continuous 48. Pics won’t seem to upload

I checked and unfortunately I didn't keep a record of the part number. NAPA still sells snap in rubber stem valves and I don't think you will have a problem finding what you need. Since the 22nd/23rd Series don't have the style of hubcaps that can interfere with the stem, I have had no problems with the rubber stem.
