What's the best way to remove the nipple from a fount?  I'm working on an Akron 134 G and I'd like to take it out because the burner valve is seating way too low.

Thanks in advance,

Jaybird

Sorry, I don't know the technical term/name for it...  Is the bung the threaded chingadera that screws into the fount and conversely into the burner valve?  On my 132, the bung comes out as one unit with the burner valve, which is why I'm asking...

Not sure of that model but simply inverting in a vise with rubber gloves always gets the valve out

Left, 134, Right, 132... So, in the 134, the valve burner does come off, but, a threaded nipple/bung remains inside, unlike the 132 where EVERYTHING come out as one piece...

Your picture doesn’t show up. I just get the “waiting balls” on the flickr page.

But I have a 132 and IIRC, the bung is soldered into the fount?

Edit, now the pic shows!

So, should I shim the bung's threads then: Is that even possible--SIGH?

What is an IIRC?

IIRC = if I recall correctly. There, you made me type it all out.  😂 

is the problem the valve is too loose when clocked correctly?  Didn’t you ask about thread sealants recently?  There were several listed that will lock the threads. Use one of those when the valve is in the correct position.

If someone put the valve in too far, it stretches the threads in the bung and it is too loose at the original position.

Is this what you need?  Pics?

Or try some Loctite Blue 242 thread locker.  Should be readily available.

A nipple refers to a short length of pipe with a male thread on both ends. Sometimes people refer to the jet on a Petromax as a nipple. And there is one on a baby bottle, and several on the baby's mother.

not always. Especially if it is not a Coleman. If you do that to an AGM the valve usually shears off. Or the soldered bung breaks loose inside the fount. Same with many Preways.
