    That 'ignore other post' hole is not a through hole - it will have to be drilled out.

    Edit:
    And the holes appear to be about the same distance apart as the other two - a little hard to tell with the neg screw and mesh in there right now.

    Tank is threaded.

    I have that exact tip and it fits rather loosly in the Hydra - maybe a fatter o-ring would make it tight. I don't have any to try though, at the moment.

    You could probably take off the o-ring and put some thread or teflon tape underneath it to make the fit a little more snug.

    Well I was going to get another Hydra today, but...

    I just seen the AGA Tiamet and decided to give that one a try! Looks a little on the large side, but I like the clear tank and, if it is as good as the Hydra, I don't think I can go wrong. It will probabaly need the same kind of tweaking as the Hydra so we'll see how it goes.

    I just did the exact same thing! The clear tank sold me.

    That center positive pin is so small in diameter, I don't like how sloppy it is in the top section - it moves about very easily and when I swap the Hydra to other devices, just the movement of the pin in the battery end is enough to cause the very top coil to short.

    What I did (I said DID!) to fix it was to take a battery post insulator from a carto and replace the top insulator supplied. Then I stripped the insulation off a piece of 12/2 house wiring wire about 3-4mm in length and pushed that into the center of the carto insulator. When reassembled there is no wobble at all. I put a small washer on before the first nut, too. When get back to work tomorrow, I'm going to try to find another small nut like the first one and double up.
    Something else to try is take one of the larger knurled nuts and switch it with the smaller hex nut the give that post a little more rigidity I think it's because I can really tighten that knurled nut more that the smaller hex and it has more surface area to hold the post,maybe. Not exactly sure why but it working for me. But I still can't set mine up yet, oh well

    I was ready to pull the trigger on another Hydra also this morning,saw the Tiamet and ordered it.The clear tank is what sold me also.
