P-series CA adapter to KP CA adapter conversion

I had some questions about a post I made a little while ago about converting your P-series or PGP CA adapter for use in your KP. Hopefully this thread will show you how to do it, if you should choose.

Credit where credit is due.....MrBig gave me the basic plans a few years ago when my KP CA adapter broke and I was scrambling to make my first KP work (wow that's been a few years and a handful of KP's ago)

To start you obviously need a P-series or PGP CA adapter. For these pictures I am using a P-series CA adapter. There are only slight changes if you're using a PGP adapter. I'll speak to them later. So you need to start with this: the CA adapter and the ring.


Next you need to make a trip to your local hardware store and go to the plumbing section. (As an aside, if you're working on Sheridans the plumbing section of hardware stores can be your best friend) You're looking for a short piece of copper tube that is threaded on both ends. The piece is 1 1/2 inches long (if you're using P-series CA adapters...it will be about 3 1/2 inches). The diameter is 1/8". So 1/8 x 1 1/2" threaded on both ends. You also need a piece of copper pipe that is 1/2" in diameter and about 1 inch long (for PGP CA adapters I believe it would then be 3 inches long) [also note that in my original build I couldn't find a 1" length so I used a 1 1/2 inch length and cut it down to an inch]. Finally you will need a female to female threaded elbow at 1/8". If you don't own plumbers tape you'll want to make sure you have some of that too. The parts look like this.



Time to head back home. You're going to thread your 1/8" x 1 1/2" piece into your existing CA adapter. Remember to wrap some plumbers tape around the male end before you screw it in to your CA adapter. Then place your 1/2 x 1" copper pipe piece over the piece you just screwed in. Then place your pre-existing screw ring for your P-series adapter in over that. Next you will screw in the other end of the male 1/8 x 1 1/2" fitting into the angled joint (also use plumbers tape). Finally you can screw in your bottom line hose into the other end of the angled joint (again tape). You're done. The final product should look something like this:


Hope this helps someone. Enjoy.

All of my KPs and P68s have had one of these at some point in time. Never had any issues with them.
