    Hey MB...

    No Problem...

    Short story...my unit was a gift for a favour rendered...needed inhalation counter-lung...OEO has them on-line for $115. each...so I buy both...replace both...good for a long time...not so fast...

    You can't buy them...they're restricted...my cost to have two CL replaced by OEO...including exchange/return shipping to Ontario...$2000...

    I boxed the unit up...and sent it back to its original home in FLA...

    Don't let any protruding object puncture your CL's...change out the bolts quick...

    Between the long bolts...and the red tape...this sounds like somebody performed a DIY retro-fit...

    If this long bolt is OEM...it should be reported to Mares/rEvo...the last place you want the CL to start leaking is at depth...the rEvo CL's are only food grade PU...heavy gauge lunch bags...they couldn't be any-more delicate...

    Best...

    The revo comes with M8 x 1.25 thread pitch carriage bolts. The red tape is factory installed to retain the bolts when the wing and harness are removed. Be very careful if you change the factory bolts as some other brands may have a more prominent head that can actually prevent the lower canister from seating correctly.
    I found this all out because I changed my bolts to longer ones on my machine to accept the delrin hand wheels so I could disassemble the machine for rinsing without using tools. Very handy, IMHO

    The only bolts that are acceptable are carriage bolts with lowest possible domed head. The clearance between the lower bolt head and the canister is VERY tight. The counter lung would be pinched between the canister and the bolt head, be very careful. The lungs are quite fragile.
