Hi All

before the Forum was re built I found a picture by GR5 about the installation of the Olson Block and the the distances of some of the components, but struggling to find them now, Although I have just managed to get back on to Forum some stuff is hard to find can anyone point me in the right direction,

help appreciated.

    NEVER touch the steel coupler (with the radial holes) when it is cold. If there has been the tiniest leak it is stuck when cold and breaks. It is fragile and needs to be so to not transport heat!

    Bob! Screw the steel coupler all the way down.

    This "lifts" the block, prevents fan shroud contact and increases teflon pressure (u only want this if you use the I2K. Else the teflon life is reduced, so THEN leave the gap like picture!
