    Rad tail snapped on me today. DOH! The wall looks well thin to me, thanks Pegler... not! Took me a good 10 min to fish the rest out of the rad.

    Had a few disfigure when tightening up.

    1 wrap of thread tape to many!

    never had that,
    I had similar fun the other week of swapping a T+p valve on a megaflow that started moving then snapped, happy days
