    My camera is not good at taking close up pics, might be better if we start here first. We'll strip the belly pan from the 4018 and you'll have full access to document the plumbing and linkages. Bring your valve and we'll mark it with a keel if need be.

    My first impression, is yeah, pretty radically different sizes. Gonna require reworking not just the plumbing but linkage too. As much as you mess with these things, there is no harm in having an extra valve handy. A cleaner installation is probably going to include your original valve, the add on holding valve that Bill offered and a selector valve but I guess we'll hash that out this weekend.

    Far as I know, I'm free either day.

    and yes I have had a few of "those looks" when setting a heavy flat rate box up on the counter!

    My local post office was thrilled when I received a 50 pound lathe chuck in a large flat rate. The girls were quite happy to see it leave!

    I bet they were!! lol

That's when you get a note in the mailbox that you have to go to the post office and pickup the package And find that the shipper should have used a roll of the fiber reinforced tape on the whole box, as the box was shredded and everything was in a USPS plastic tote The man in the post office was smiling when he said "I guess you got your money's worth out of that box "

    Well, I had the luck to have one of the tubes from the drive motor, with a bit of tweeking fit up to the valve, drilled one mounting hole, & got the linkage all worked out on both spools. So I tore everything down and yesterday afternoon on the way to work, dropped of all the big stuff at the local sandblaster joint. will need to find someone that can custom bend & flare new tubes, or just put rubber ones under there.
    Dave DONT pull your bellypan off, I managed to get under the 4018 and see enough to get ideas. Here is a sneek preview the mod for the second spool. (I don't have the travel side hooked up it these pics.)
