Afternoon me Droogs N Droogettes!
Can’t stop tinkering. Swear it gets in my head, and I can’t shake an idea.
One of the ‘weak points’ I’ve had with the design was the C02 feed. I used a straight pipe to get the C02 Ninja Mount and tank to hang off the back of the Fuel tank. Problem is, and which I realized was that there’s no give or flex, and it’s got it’s limitation.
No real support, threading and cross-threading of the tank is a -bad thing- and increased gravity causes the copper pipe to get micro-leaks. Especially when the C02 Tank is topped off… it’s already 2+ pounds on it’s own.
It was an easy install (once I removed the quick disconnect) and plugged in the hose to the CSA230 adapter.
I then used one of the previously discarded plastic water bottle holder and zip-stripped it to the frame, and mounted the C02 Bottle in it.
And so, it’s done… til I get the smaller 1/2 size 10 pound tank in on Thursday, and then it’s starting ALL over again, just in a smaller setup.
With the mods to the wand, and tank mounting, it’s gonna be fun. Video to follow once I get the C02 tanks recharged tomorrow.
