Default Can you change where your fill nipple is?

I just got a new SP On/Off ASA and a SP Shocker Drop. Unfortunately when I screw my tank in the fill nipple sits almost directly underneth my trigger frame. It sits so that my fill nipple cover can not be on it and it would be impossible to fill my tank without unscrewing it, at least a little bit. Is there any way to change where the fill nipple sits? Or and you move the fill nipple to any of the other holes on the tank? Its a Crossfire tank and there are 4 different holes. Any ideas?

Try laying an extra o-ring in the ASA so it doesnt screw in as far.

I always tossed an o-ring in there like durrell said when I had that problem.

If the tank is empty you can swap the fill nipple spots with one of the burst disks I think. Im not sure thought, so I would just take it to an airsmith, they'd prolly do it or free, and then you wouldn't need to worry about orings in your ASA.
