Touch Control Fill Plug - Extension

Fri Nov 27, 2009 9:24 pm

I got tired of spilling TC Fluid whenever I wanted to top off the reservoir. So thinking about what Jim and a few others have done.. I decided to go ahead and put in an extension.

After the 7/8"-18 NPT fitting boo-boo - I realized that the threads were a standard 3/4" NPT which made sourcing the parts a lot simpler. Since I already had a number of 1/2" NPT nipples of varying lengths I elected to get the following items for this little upgrade:

a 3/4" x 1/2" NPT Reducer Bushing

and a 3/4" x 1/2" NPT Reducing Elbow

as that would be the cheapest avenue for me.

I added a Hex Head Plug, 3/4 In, Threaded, Blk Steel

I was all set. I used a 1/2" x 4" NPT nipple

to get the elbow out past the Rear Rock shaft Rod. After assembly this is what I have:

Now I can top off or re-fill the reservoir without using a funnel and without spilling a drop :!: :{_}: :big smile: Another benefit of this little project, is if I actually need to use an external reservoir, it will be an easy additon for the splitter project.
