Hi, I'm new to the forum, so, here goes . . .

I am interested in doing some basic fount pressure checking. I understand that a Schrader valve with a 1/8 NPT will work to fit in the bung opening. Is there anything else that I need to know, like diameter of bung, etc?

200s, 242s and many of the off-brand lanterns use the 1/8" NPT bung. 220s and their kin all use an odd tapered thread that doesn't correspond to anything you'll find in the plumbing section.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

It may be easier to drill and tap the insert for a 220 size fuel cap for the 1/8" NPT Schrader valve and use the lantern valve to close the fount.
