Hi all,
"but after bending all the valve pins in a little so that they made a tighter fit"
This is NOT a good idea as even a little bend is liable to fracture the glass "frit" seal as the valve is subject to heat cycles.
The most satisfactory and best solution is to change the base, I know it is a pain but it is cheaper than a new valve.
