    Ok, I thought it was the amount of lines. They all screw in:). its just that when I use the ones I got in( the one in the middle) I get leaks ; the whole tank empties. Dont know if its because I cant screw it down because of my bad weak hands, but the large one on the right dont leak. Darn I need more of those,
    at least 4. If anyone has any of the big ones I will give you 2 of the middle ones per each larger one. Please:)

    Interesting thing today regarding odysseus. I rebuilt it while on the road and again the big nut which holds the positive wire gets stuck. With no needle nose pliers on hand and me unable to unthread it using fingers, I just trapped the positive wire under the oring ala ithaka and it holds very well! That's how I am gonna build it from now on. :)

    Update on those nuts!

    As I thought, it IS me. I got my son to tighten things down and no leaks on either nuts.

    I guess my stupid messed up hands just has a hard time these days. Big nut is just easier to work with.

    all nuts work the same and they can be screwed the same way ana.

    Why do you think they are different for your hands?

    On the smaller nuts maybe a custom made pronged screwdriver would be helpful. Or you could do what I did and put an o-ring or 2 between the ceramic and the nut. Should raise the nut so that the post doesn't extend past it but still allow your to tighten it easily. Also it has the advantage of cushioning the ceramic so if you over tighten it will be less likely to crack.

    ana, dont try to screw hard the nut against center post. You cant do it either because the center post comes out of the nut before you totally screw the nut on it. What you have to do is to screw a little the nut and then spin the ceramic housing against the center post. When you feel that you cant spin it more, keep with pliers the center post from its knurled part and screw the ceramic housing by hand

    That IS what I do. My problem with the smaller ones is that when i cant get it to stop spinning with the small ones.

    But like I said, I m tired of constantly explaining things and being questioned.

    I reached out in a desperate plea for help and .....

    thank you, I will deal with it.
