Halkey Roberts Long Stem Valve Caps

Hi All,
My wife just bought an old Sotar with the old style Halkey Roberts long stem valves, and no valve caps. I have reverse engineered the caps, and am having some made for her boat. The more pieces I order, the better the rate. Would anyone buy these if I had them available? If I order 100, I could sell them for $25/piece, or 5 for $100. I know this is steep, but this pricing would barely cover my cost. I am not making the whole valve, literally just the cap and gasket in the cap. Would anyone be interested, or should I just make a few for my wife's boat?
Thanks,
Tim

Hi Snowjunkie,
I will let you know how the prototype I get looks, and see if you are still interested.

Maybe 2

I would be interested in 2 if they work, keep us posted. Mine is 1 1/8 inch from rubber gasket to the end although it may not matter if it's just the cap but how do they stay on?

Almost there!

I got my prototype back, and most of the geometry worked well, though I did make a few changes and hope to have an improved proto next week. Once the design is locked down, I will likely have these available for sale. Check out the pics, and let me know if you would be interested.
The prototype I made is in white, gray is original shown for comparison. I would likely make the caps in gray with black seals.
Thanks,
Tim

Seems like a good candidate for 3D printing.
