I had some issues also from the original parts list post:I had some issues when ordering from the first post parts list. It was probably my fault, or I mis entered part numbers but ended up short some parts and others did not appear to fit together correctly. After a few more trips, I decided to go for 3/4 as per the suggestion and am only missing the shut off valves. I am considering changing out the keg post adapter part for one that I can just attach to the keg lines where the QD's screw in. Then again, maybe I should just make a second one of them so I can have both.
The 1"x3/4" adapters, PN 23856 are the 3/4" adapter to be used on the 3/4" vertical center pipe that goes inside the bucket/carboy/keg, etc. You still need at least one of these, depending on how many different lengths of 3/4" pipe you want to use. This slips over the end of the 3/4" pipe and puts a male thread on the end.
The 90° elbows, PN 23868 are also the 3/4" size, substitute these with the 1" elbows, PN 23870 @ .76 each.
Missing from the original parts list are the adapters that fit into the 1" slip fit elbows, and are 3/4" threaded for the plugs, barbed elbows, etc. Use 1"x3/4" adapter PN 227573 @ 1.00 each.
I ordered the pump which should arrive any day now so I am not really clear on how this will connect up. The photos show that the outlet is threaded but I don't know the pitch or the size.
Hope this saves a few trips to Lowe's. BTW, fine work on the cleaner, I look forward to using this when it's finally built. Cleaning buckets, carboys, and kegs is a real PITA, but this should make life easier and I'm all about easy. Thanks for all the work that went into pulling this together.
