Been knee deep the last couple of days,but i finally got around to installing the brand new nipples to No3.

Test time. If this makes the issue go away,well..then we know.

I've said it for years   cap makers and nipple makers  don't  talk to each other.

Be interesting to know where the cap makers got their dimensions from and why the two different makers don't all get together and standardize their products.
