Got the neighbor's kid's marker here working on it and he has try'd to make a expansion chamber thread in place of the hose that goes to the ASA....

Well its all buggered up now..... what drill it out and re tap it to the next size up and thread in a fitting to reduce it back down to what ever paint guns use... 3/8" ???

1/8 NPT if you can re-tap it to that, spyder uses goofy sizes if there thrashed i would standardize the fittings and what not if you can.

Thanks.... his marker is a ViewFinder.

But I will be working on mine shortly with a custom tank holder and ASA mounted at the MR1's front grip, no hoses just hard lines.... you say Spyder uses odd pipe thread sizes ? I may go ahead and trill and tap it also.

Thanks..

ahh well in that case it may already be the standard threads.

check out palmers website and see if there is a fitting that will do the trick or drill and tap if you have measured everything.
