got the fittings and they are exactly what I was looking for, very nice.. [img][/img] I will make the tank later today and post some pics.. Do you know off hand what size drill bit for them and do you use any other sealant on them? I sent you a money order for payment, thanks a bunch... I will shoot you an email soon for some more, like I said before, these are something I want to have stock of in the shop....[img][/img]
Great Jim, thanks for letting me know. I think we'll do FedEx next time.
You want a fairly snug fit on the fitting stem. Start with 3/16" and drill carefully since the bit can grab the tank's plastic wall and ruin your day.
I don't use any other sealant. The rubber seal is on the outside and the nut goes inside the tank. All you need. Just make sure the nut and fitting are snugged.... I hold the nut with a forceps and turn the fitting
As a precaution, once the tank is assembled and the cap is screwed on snug (not tight just snug), I add a strip of electrician's mastic tape around the cap and bottle stem. This is the stuff that stretches and sticks to itself. Home Depot, Lowes, ACE all carry it. It holds the cap on and controls vibration yet is removable when you need to make adjustments inside.
