Default Gas line connect issue for brutus style system

So I built a brutus style hookup. I'm only using pipes for the HLT and MASH tanks with Love controls and Soleniods.

Issue is where the 10psi LP connector hooks up it leaks at the connection I think because it's designed to allow air intake when its connected directly to a burner.

Hope this makes sense. Pictures attached. Advise welcome.

You are missing the taper seat fitting for the hose end, a standard pipe bushing will not work as the tapered tip is the part that seals the gas in.

kladue is right. I ran into the same issue when I tried to reused my hose from a Bayou burner.

Save your self a headache, http://bayouclassicdepot.com/7906_propane_hose.htm.htm

or http://www.bigway.com/CARTgallery34.htm

You will need a flare fitting and maybe a reducer from 1/4" to 1/8" (if you are recycling the 10psi regulator).

Hope this helps.

Cheers!
