I just posted a Titan II first stage for sale if anybody is interested doing what many have done.But the story doesn't end here... Phil has made me up a Titan conversion to put in my blue plastic cans. I'm looking forward to putting that together and I'll post the story here for those who might be interested
Maybe a pin going through the plastic from the inside, and into a shallow blind hole in the brass body. It would have to go in flush with the inside of the plastic can so the ring can screw on. Would the plastic be tough enough to handle that?Vancetp wrote: ↑Sat Feb 13, 2021 8:15 pmI am waiting on pins and needles for your dive report. It should be an excellent performer.
Please remember that the FX boxes can rotate on the first stage body under handling, which can degrade performance. The venturi jets are drilled precisely and need to point straight down the intake horn! You should make indexing marks on the first stage and the top box. Be sure to check them before entering the water!!
I am working on a way to key the 1st stage in the box. Not easy, b/c there's not much sealing surface.
Yes, but the Mistral washer is more than 1/2" wide. The Titan II has a 1/4" -ish surface. Agreed, sealer will work, most likely, but it's hairy.antique diver wrote: ↑Sat Feb 13, 2021 10:05 pm
Think about the Mistral. It uses a rubber gasket to seal around the registration pin, but you might be able to just use silicone sealant on the pin.
