I have a Dacor metal regulator and a Uwatc Smart Z computer. I am having a problem getting the transmitter to screw completely into the 1st stage. The area on the first stage is raised slightly and will not allow the transmitter to screw all the way in. I have had a local shop recommend a short , one inch, hose to go between the two. I do not like this idea as it will not be firmly attached. Another shop is going to try a thicker o-ring, but I have doubts about that solution as well. Does any one know of an all metal extension, or similar device that I could use? I only need about 1/4", but it could be longer if that is all I can get. I really don't want to settle for a non-rigid solution for a high pressure port supplying all of my gauges. The hose would allow it to "dangle" around back there.
