Fill Adapter Repair
« on: August 20, 2016, 05:35:14 PM »
The oring in my fill adapter gave out on me. I did a search on how to replace it and came up with this. The knob has locktite on it to keep it from backing off when you use it. Just simply keep unscrewing it until the locktite breaks loose and then screw the stem out the other side. Replace oring and reassemble. Well that was a failure. It ripped the tiny shoulder of the oring groove off, jacked up the threads in the housing.

I made a replacement stem but of a 2 piece design. I actually only made the inside portion and cut the thread part off the the old stem. I cleaned up the threads and assembled it.

I have one that leaks like a sieve. Couldn't figger how to get the knob off, locktite eh? A little heat should soften it up I imagine to keep from breaking the stem. Another project this winter for me. :D
