    rEvo cable thread

    Does someone know by heart what the size of this thread is on the box on top of the rEvo? It's not the same size apparently as the port plugs on the first stages which I hoped. I need to close it up but can't seem to find the same size in my toolbox.

    Ok, found it.

    It seems I have to find some closed tube or something on the island. Well, that's going to be an adventure.

    Re: rEvo cable thread

    I just re tapped this hole so I could put a fitting in it, get the right size tap and then use some 5200 on the threads, bingo sealed.

    Probably a lot easier to find a 1/4npt tap and a 1/4 NPR to 3/8 unf then a pg7 on curaçao.

    Yeah, but Jason or Paul don't do international shipping with DHL, so it takes 3 weeks instead of 3 days to get here. Not an option.

    I have to send a rEvodream for repair to the US, so I'm left with a hole. I have a box full of spares, but not a blank PG7 plug of course.

    But yeah, the easiest option is probably to order a blank plug and leave the broken rEvoDream on until it arrives. (The cable is somewhere broken as 1 LED doesn't blink anymore.) It's a 6 week project probably.

    Sometimes I'm really thinking about just going sidemount again............

    A short piece of cable and the original gland could be used to reseal the hole.

    In an emergency a 1/2" UNF blanking plug (the large intermediate pressure port on an Apeks DST 1st stage) can be used, however you need to be aware that this distorts the thread in the hole slightly, although not so much it can't be re used for PG7.

    I had this exact same problem a few weeks ago. I was able to get a P7 plug pretty fast from Ocean Edge Outfitters. But, I wasn't on Curaçao! I've been to Aruba and Bonaire... it's pain to get anything!

    Yes, Ocean Edge Outfitters ships to the US, but not to Curacao. (At the moment. Jason is working on it.) Therefor I have to have them ship it to my postal address in Miami and I let it fly over from there to here. This takes 2 to 3 weeks.

    A lot of US companies don't ship international which is very inconvenient. DHL has a very good service all over the world and also here on the island (3 days), but they won't use it.

    I will keep diving with my broken rEvodream for another 3 weeks until my blank PG7 plug arrives and then I wait another 3 to 4 weeks until the rEvodream is back. One of the joys of rebreather diving and living on a tropical island.

    Re: rEvo cable thread

    But, this is why I bought a rEvo with a SW, 2 rEvodream and a 5 cell grid, so I can keep on diving in a remote location. It's a good rebreather for in the field.

    I've researched it quite well and I've seen quite a lot of other rebreathers and rebreather divers and never been jealous.

    For the same reason why we also don't ride Harley's over here. That's fun when you're never far away from a mechanic, but we just ride Yamaha's here which never break down.

    So, this will get the thread started.
