Started working on my MLT conversion tonight. I'm using Bobby_M's idea
for a PVC spacer to support the cooler wall. All went well until I tried screwing the camlock fitting into the valve. Either the teflon tape wasn't up to the task, or the threads were too messed up, but I jammed it good. Took a while to get them back apart and it only went in a couple of threads deep.
Saw someone recommend Loctite 567 for stainless fittings instead of the teflon tape. I'm going to get some and give it another try. Anybody else have trouble with this? I was expecting this to be the easy part.
