i am adding a weldless bulkhead to my ice cube mlt, its the 50 qt so it wasnt drilled, drilled the hole everything fits perfect am getting mixed results about what configuration to set the bulkhead with, both big O rings, both small O rings, one big one small just one on the outside washers no washers etc.

i know most leaks are caused during operator error while installing.
so whats the deal?

Took me a while to get mine leak free, I think I have two small o-rings, one on each side of the wall, and two washers one on each side as well. Then I just tightened the crap out of it. Was kind of a pain in the ass but it eventually worked, just keep tryin'
