Steve -

It's farther to the side than the picture makes it look. Once I had her running [takes about 5 seconds], it was no problem at all to just slide the extension and its rubber connector right off the pipe. Easier than disconnecting the spark wire, really.

The rubber hose is a very tight fit for the tire extension, just a nice sliding fit for the 1/4-inch tubing, so it always stays with the extension when you pull it. Incidentally, the tire valve thread seems to be a rather odd 5/16-32 - surely an NXF classification. Standard glow plugs are 1/4-32, which is National Extra Fine [NXF].
