Ram 35 sliding connection nozzle choice

Postby Verloren » Fri Jul 22, 2011 9:51 pm

Hey all

I have a bay reservoir mounted in the top 5.25" bays and a fill port installed directly above one of the top reservoir ports. The distance between the port and the fill port thread is 12mm.

I have been eying up the sliding ram block fittings as they seem to have the ability to connect my fill port to the reservoir in the cleanest way possible. Which one of the ram-35 connectors is the perfect size for my application?

Thanks very much for your help!

You want to stay with the same nozzle size that you have. If you have 10mm tubing then stick with 10mm nozzles and the same goes if you have 13mm tubing.

I'm sorry, you seem to have misunderstood me.

The total gap between my chosen reservoir ports and the G1/4" tail end of the fillports is a total of 12mm. As such 2 compressions will never fit. A search of join fittings led me to the RAM-35 sliding nozzles.

I was asking which one of the 3 or 4 types would be best suited for a 12mm gap. I ordered a couple of type 1's as the manual suggested they work for a 10-13mm gap. I assume this was the correct choice?

My loops use 1/2" ID 3/4" OD tubing, but that is irrelevant to the question.

I appreciate you taking the time to read and respond though, to aid in understanding my requirement, I have attached a picture. I have installed one end of a standard SLi connector to the base of the fillport just to illustrate the space constraints present.

There are 2 reservoirs and fillports in my Mountain Mods U2UFO case.
