    HELP!!! Trying to plumb in my Vesuvius......

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Attempting to plumb my Vesuvius coffee machine I have run into the following problems:

    • Valve on underside of machine is mounted too high, so that the adaptor fouls with the body before it is flush.
    • Adaptor supplied with Vesuvius does not have a gasket/seal for the face that mounts to the adaptor or for the braided plumbing line.
    • I need an adaptor to fit from the braided line to 1/4" plastic tubing (for my flojet). I read online that this was "John Guest Adapter 3/8″ NPTF Male Thread to 1/4″ Tube", however when I went to fit it today it was completely the wrong dimension thread. I am guessing 1/2" might be what I need but would be very grateful for confirmation.

    Any advice from people who may have completed this project before would be fantastic, particularly concerned about the valve mounting.
