REbuilt my Petcock Reserve Inlet screen

I needed to rebuild my petcock reserve inlet screen. I bought some 80 mesh brass screen from an E-Bay hobby shop.

Here's what I did to "fix" it.



80 Mesh brass screen.
So I take a small strip, and use some small aluminum tube to shape it and hold the shape. I used aluminum because the solder won't stick to it.



I solder it up the seam, and add a small piece of brass tubing at the bottom that will fit inside the existing brass flange that was in the petcok holding the original screen.
The I solder the small tubing into the stock fitting.

Seam side:



Opposite side:



Then I took a strand of copper wire and tied the top of the screen to the standard dip tube for a little extra support:



I added new washers to the petcock, but it was amazing how bad the original washer was compared to the new one (on the mounting nut)

No wonder you think people should crimp instead of solder!

I keed, I keed...that's a great fix, and I may have to follow suit on a petcock that's on my bench right now. Thanks!

First attempt on screen.

I solder wires well, actually, but prefer crimps for most connections.

I made the screen longer than stock. Hopefully, with a marginal tank it won't clog as fast.

Since I have an extra tank, I think I will try coating the older one.

What did you pull the little brass fitting from? I think we might have something similar in the 'big box of lamp parts'.

It was in the petcock from the original brass screen. I telescoped a slightly smaller tube into it.
