Is this the adapter you used?

The price isn't bad, but the shipping doubles it....

Question: All the specs I find on the Firestone liquid-out post say 5/18-18. How does it fit onto the 3/8" flare??

I have no idea, but with a few wraps of tape mine has never leaked a drop...

Cheers!

Of course, you'll still need to put a tail piece and nut on the pump tubing (dont forget the rubber o-ring and the o-ring clamp). Voila, now it will hook directly up to your sankey beer line.

Anyone know where you can find the adapter (3/8 flare x 3/8 FIP) in Europe?
It seems like a fairly straightforward part to find, but I can't find it anywhere.

I did this also for my commercial lines with one exception. I didn't have the patience to wait on the wall bracket. I went to a local hydraulic place which has fittings for 7/8-14 threads. I told them I needed to go from 7/8-14 to a 3/8 barb and for $7.26, they worked it out.

Should I be worried about the small amount of what appears to be white lithium grease in the sprayer pump shaft? I too have the 1.5L GardenPlus from Lowes.

After going to use it today, my PBW had a substantial grease smell, so I tossed it and noticed it looks like about half the white lithium that was originally in there is gone...

Ugh. I'd definitely get that stuff out of there one way or the other...

Cheers!

I just made one of these with a corny keg liquid post. Turns out, it's pretty easy. There are 2 green pieces on the nozzle. Take off the first one and pull out the clear plastic piece. Then you can screw the post directly on to what's left. You will be making your own threads with the post and will need a wrench to force it on. The fit is good. To hold the poppit in position, you'll need to use a hack saw to cut off a piece of the green protruding part that the first green part (that you took off) screws into. I took off about a quarter inch. It depends on how far you screw the post down, so maybe saw off a little bit at a time to get it right. Works great, you don't need a coupling or washers. Just $7 for the Flow-Master 56HD and the cost of the post.
