Decided to machine some missing parts out of my scrap.I don't know how I was able to get the meter tube packing gland and nut
off without destroying them. Also made a "sort of"diverter cap.

Made the meter tube handle out of an aluminum bearing housing and hot rolled rod. Also need to make up the 5 gal locator fingers. The only repros I found were for the 10gal.

Spent quite a bit of time fitting the conduits. Cutting and rethreading and the connectors barely tighten down together.
The bannana nozzel was a local auction find. From the Voc-Ag Shop at my high school,their scrap pile provided the stone guard material.
