Does any one know a trick for removing the 1/8 brass restrictor fittings that the waterlines attach to? There are three of the fittings that wont tighten all the way and leak slightly beause the threads on the brass fitting are stripped. When I tried to remove one from the header, I could barely move it. I finnally got it out by working it back and forth ,but I am afraid I might break one off.
will a regular fitting from a hardware store work, with 1/8 pipe and 1/4 flare or are they specially made? I know the one in the header has the same size hole all the way thru, and the one from the hardware store has a large opening on the pipe thread side and a small diameter hole only about half way thru?
Do any of You have any tricks for fixing the ones that leak and will not tighten all the way? I was searching and saw where moneysucker said to use jb weld. Dont know if he was kidding or not?
There has got to be a better set up Has any one ever made there own manifolds?.....Hal
