    Refit the adapters to a YJ 41 reversed so the hose parks are on the front and have been using that for both DC ever since.
    Thought of doing that but two things stop me: 1) the extra amount of joints and the fact that plumbing fitting aren't really rated for deep vacuum.

    2) The plumg supply houses don't have the counter guys with enough back ground to know the fittings I need.


    What would I need specifically to make that modification? Rather take a chance at HD and get them there.

    I honestly doubt that most manifolds are TRULY rated for deep vacuum work, either.

    Not trying to start that particular battle up with you, but since you pointed out the vacuum rating of the fittings...


    I think that the Appion manifold might be, but the rest.... anyone's guess.

    Imperial used to be back in the day...had some ASHRAE standard that they were certified against.

    Hell, ASHRAE has a rating for how many btus are used up to pass wind. They have standards for everything.
