The six screws that are included are long set screws used to connect the tension rods to the back plate. You will find that one end of the set screw has a pocket for the included hex wrench so you can screw them in. Once all the set screws are in the back plate you put the tension rods on and it will be pretty obvious what to do from there.

The video will be out shortly.

Thanks, will wait for the video. I have been able to put together 1 reservoir and leak tested it but want to make sure I did it right biggrin.gif

Also, which screws do you recommend to for attaching MMRS-TRP to the tension rods? There are black ones that came with the rods and chrome ones with the end-cap. On the second reservoir, I am having some trouble threading the motor mounting tube on to the D5 end-cap and wondering if I used the wrong screws.

The goal was to save you money because you only have to get the parts you need for your build...I didn't want to mess that up by going nuts with fancy pants packaging.


Oh I understand and as far as that goes I really appreciate your forethought in the matter. I was thinking more everything laid out all pretty like...speaking of which my PPCS order just showed up, one down one to go! ;-)

You can really use either but the stainless screws that come with the MMRS-TRP part are the ones I would use as they don't show when installed...why waste the sexier colored screws?

If you watch the SAP video it shows how you can make sure you haven't cross threaded the motor mounting tube. I am reposting the link below--you can skip to about the 3:30 mark if you don't want to watch the whole thing.

For builders that don't find the other two methods I mentioned feasible and really want some sort of dampening solution...this is what I am going to test out first. Three pins 25mm (1") long by 6mm diameter (1/4") in the high pressure area. If it works well we will probably offer the pins in both a clear acrylic so they are invisible, and in brass plated with antimicrobial silver so they can help keep the green gunk out of your loop.

I will let you know how they do.

I'm hoping to at least get a test loop running on a res here soon and should be able to provide some video. It won't be for a week though as mentioned above, work etc.

Based on your sketch and the scale/size of the upwards facing tube I take it to mean you want an upward facing tube that is the same diameter as the main reservoir tube? If so there is not a stock part for that. If you don't require the upward facing section to be the same diameter there are at least two parts that would work. The molded coupler has 2 side facing ports that would be on the top of the reservoir facing towards the desk top, and the end caps with side facing ports also have those ports.

Is your desk top material acrylic or glass? If it is glass, do you have the ability to cut/drill openings into it? Or do you lift the top to fill / top off the reservoir? I wouldn't mind making some custom machined aluminum fill port parts for a project like this if you you can make openings in the glass.

Another option would be to run the reservoir from the far left side to the far right side and have external fill and drain ports similar to the set up in the video I posted on that subject.

Top is just acrylic glued to wood. I have enough slack tubing that I can actually pick the reservoir assembly up and tilt it for filling and draining.



The top ports are sweet for that purpose anyway though.

Also let's face a fact. Those are way cooler looking reservoirs than what I'm rocking now. Definitely gonna switch next time I drain the fluid (here in about 3 months or so).

Gotta wonder though, these reservoirs are acrylic, so in theory they should be bendable just like the pipes, right? and I bet a radiator hose would fit quite nicely inside to help keep it shape too. Hmmm thinking.gif

Hmm...quite possibly the coolest idea ever?

The tightest bend inside radius you could get away with is about 1.5 x the tubes OD...so about 90 mm inside radius...certainly food for thought

Looks like this its one of the old mounting tubes I already had that came off from a M2 bay reservoir has this threading issue. I will try to get another new one next week to see if that works. For now I am using a different color to get things going. Still have very small leak from one of the hole where the tension rods goes into the D5 end cap. Need to figure that one out.

And, not the best picture but what do guys think about this setup, ignore the color mismatch on the bottom one because that's the one I was referring to above and will replace the motor tube with a black one.

Looking at the pictures of the MMRS End Cap with D5 Pump Mount - Black (Model: MMRS-TRP), I cannot tell if a pump mount such as MMRS 12mm Stand Alone Pump Mount - White (MMRS-MT-SAP-WH) is usable.
