For many years, I have used G-S Hypo Cement.  I think I learned about it from Bill Dulin.

It sets up reasonably fast but allows enough time to adjust the valve position.  The little needle spout allows you to neatly and accurately dispense a single small drop.    

The only disadvantage I can think of is that replacing the cap requires inserting a thin wire into the tiny spout. If you can’t thread a needle, you might find it difficult.

I clamp the valve in a clothespin and put a tiny drop on it.  Then I put a tiny drop on the plate and wait a minute.   Using philatelist’s tweezers, I put it in place and adjust it with a fingertip if necessary.   

I recommend it for valves.  Give it a try.  There is little to lose and you may like it as much as I do.
