They have to machine the body so the top cap can screw on farther which will clock it. Any machine shop with a lathe can turn it down a bit. Tighten cap to check clocking and repeat until it is right.

I’ve done it before with a big metal file. Just hold it flat across the top and file away going around the top evenly.

ahhhhhh. Didn't even think of that. Just get it to thread in deeper..

I suppose at some point you will run out of that unthreaded area where o-ring seals... but I bet that is more than .5 turns worth of material...

I machine the caps.
Psssssshhhhh.

That’s the sissy easy way. Real men use a steady rest and let the bypass tubes and resi fitting spin haphazardly around. Plus the body costs waaaaaay more to replace if you fuck it up, so naturally you should machine the body and not the cap. Duh

^^ LOL. I don't have any fancy lathes sitting around. But, maybe I can find someone that does. Problem is you cant just say "take off .050" ... you have to take some off.. put cap on and check, and then rinse and repeat...

na, just back the head off 1 turn from tight and measure the gap with a caliper or feeler gauges. split it by .25 if you want a 1/4 turn and so on. or back it off a 1/4 turn and measure, etc etc. what ever works best, then take the cap down and tell them you want that amount turned off it and done.

Measure thread pitch, not that hard to figure out.

I think they are 20TPI? so .050 per revolution. If you want to clock it 20*, .050/360X20=profit. Dial indicate them before you take a cut to make sure they are flat. Small chuck on the ID and a center to ram it home. Thin part off blade and your down town.

Don't fuck up, you can not go more then 1 revolution or the O-ring gets into the threads.
