5)Plastic valve caps are only dust covers and the shrader valve is only supposed to be a temporary seal. Use a metal cap with a seal for higher pressures. For best results, use a metal valve stem with a sealing cap.
Man, I remember having these back in the 1970's. I have plastic right now. I'm gonna get metal sealed ones like you said.
