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.
