Default How to get Bazooka tube onto FLYGUYS cooler MLT

I have the "T" bazooka tube. Its not threaded, but I wanted to know if anyone knows the best way to attach this to the FLYGUY MLT. I don't mind if I have to solder it, I just want it on there nice and snug so it doesnt come off and ruin my day. Thanks!

Chris

Is the T copper? What type of fitting do you have coming out of your bulkhead?

yes the T fitting is copper. The bulkhead is the 3/8” female barb adapter (Watts A-298)

I used a 1/2" FPT to 1/2" sweat fitting instead of the barb adapter, then sweated in a short length of 1/2" copper pipe and a 45 street elbow. It's low enough that you can squeeze the bazooka T on underneath. Stays in place like a champ for me.
