    I'm considering mounting a standard, bare, bottom/spool-mount (not rear-mount pony-style) SPG to an HP port splitter with standard female HP ports (not spool compatible) by installing an HP port o ring on the SPG nipple .

    Does anybody know that it can or can't work?


    I'd also like to put that port splitter at the end of an HP hose. What is the spec for the bore that a spool inserts into?

    TIA

    It will not work. Use a short hose (with a spool) or go to a button gauge designed for this.

    Thanks.

    I'm looking to run my HP hose over the the L shoulder and run both an SPG and AI transmitter on the end.

    Even the larger rear-mounted SPGs are only about 1"; I was hoping for a 1.5" for older eyes...

    Put an HP splitter on the 1st stage. Transmitter will sit an extra inch or two out up top, and you can run your SPG hose wherever you like.

    @JackD342

    I have 2 HP ports on my 1st stage
    The desire is to have the transmitter on the end w/ a QD.
    1) Transmitter is not an accidental handle
    2) Transmitter is closer to computer for better signal reliability
    3) Transmitter can be popped off to move to another rig.
    4) A QD to DIN male can be substituted for a compact, if slow, Pony transfiller.

    It may all be a bit unneccessary, but I am a tinkerer ...
