Just pulled my rear Rave valve to install a new gasket and check o-ring. You ever see wear like that on the rear face? It's as if the coating is flaking off. Other than that it looks really good. Ok to run it? Planning on taking it out for it's first run on Saturday.

It is smooth to the touch. The only thing I can feel is the edges in a few spots where the metal meets the flaking coating.

It isn't flaking in the sense that I can peel or chip it off by hand though.
