Mech Ion mod made easy

A long time ago, xluben showed us his mechanical ion, which can be found here: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=2284887


To me, and maybe to others, that wasn't too clear on how ACTUALLY to do it. So I'll tell you what exactly you need, and where to get it.




1/5.) 5/32 (4mm) banjo

2/4/6/8.) Ion hose kit

3.) Piece A / Piece B

7.) Go here
and search for...

C030305 (x1)
EB30 (x2)

9.) Clippard QEV


I got as much stuff from one place as possible, so you don't get raped on shipping.

NOTE: If for some reason #3 does not work for you, part a = 51495K721 and part b = 5779K441

Nope, any will work. However with this project, flow rate is KEY, and the clippard wins in that category. So stay away from the 360...

EDIT: You want the Threads to 1/8" barb EB30

The smallest fitting that I have found that works best is the Clippard T33-2 this combined with the SMAV-3 are the only non stock fittings you should have to use.

5/32 banjo --- T33-2----5/32 banjo (5/32 od (3/32id) hose)
THe 1/6th barb from the T33-2 goes to the SMAV-3 input and the output on the SMAV-3 goes to the QEV

I have built a few of these using the T33-2 fitting from clippard which ensures that you have maximum room inside the frame to route the hoses.


Cbomber are you going to be at headrush this Sunday? If so pm me I have the some of the parts you will need.

Mike's trying to get another sticky with his name on it

Good job, maybe it'll help stop a question or two about it in the future

Not prolly ever going to to do this mod. but looking at the diagram. on the part labeled "7" shouldnt there be another hose or something to close off that second top side barb? i see the one hose leading to the 3 way tee union then the one barb for the middle banjo or qev. but then theres that other one. just none used. shouldnt something be there

the 3rd barb on the 3 way is not used. you could put a hoes on it if you were so inclined to do so but it would be wasted.
