    Default Center pin

    Alright Provari folks. I posted this in the technician section and got nothing. I'm relying on you guys here. I want to change the center pin on my provaris to either a spring loaded pin or a floating pin. My kanger protank 3 gets its positive post squished when I flush mount it to my provaris and it's bad enough that I don't use it anymore. Which is sad because I love the taste it produces. Has anyone, anyone at all made this change to their setup? I have two provaris, both 2.5 chips, one old body style one new body. The older one is out of warranty at this point so I'm semi willing to experiment. Would just like input before I do.


    Thanks!

    No clue on post replacement, just a possible experiment to address ProTank post-squishing.
    You could try a different base?
    One from Tatroe if you like tight airflow, or the new Aerotank base if you like adjustable airflow...

    LOL - I have a Kayfun 3.1 clone ordered, but I'm still shopping for (very specific) carto-tanks...
    (Kir Fanis, and a couple "Pro"-styled tubes)

    I lost my love affair with cartos when I got protanks and other bcc's and bdc's. Last carto tank I had was a 6 mil giant that couldn't keep up with my chain Vaping. The carto game has changed so much at this point that I wouldn't know where to start! Lol

    Try filing off the center pin on the addie a little bit till you get the fit you want. Why mess up a proVari.

    I think a floating/spring loaded pin would give more flexibility.

    Why not ask Provape?

    Id have to agree with tfl. I'm not super knowledgeable on modding but it just seems a better idea to mess with the $15 equipment over the $200 equipment.

    I would modify the protank....
    With that said I have had one of my provaris apart. the top cap is sealed so it cant leak into the provari. It looks like the pin could be drilled out and an adjustable pin screwed in. My fear would be liquid leaking in and killing the electronics, The other problem I see is getting the pin to sit lower. If you drill and tap it screwed all the way down it would sit higher. Anything is possible it just depends on how bad you want it and your skill level. Keep us posted on your progress.
