You have to hold it together?

It should be a screw-in attatchment, remember one connection is for a QD application (wings) and the other is the fill valve. Each pair comes tightened together and you have to unscrew them from each other.

ok i switched the fill valve ....it takes more than 100 psi to get the nose gear up ...i guess the small dia clyinder require high pressures to lift the weight of the strut hope it can lift 3 ...or else i 'll have to do the ole C/N roll it over and retract the gear there are no threads on this brass piece it just goes in and you have to hold it .....wonder if they forgot to thread it ??

You should have gotten the SAPACS. they will do 8-10 cycles at 100 psi.
That's with the scale struts attached. Nose gear comes up at 50-60 PSI min. And no messin' with the fill valve.. Just screw it on. Fill. Screw it off.
Where did you get those retracts your using?
That fitting you have is good if you mount the fill valve in the fuse, and fill using a compressor.

The fill valve that goes in the plane is threaded with a nut for mounting. The one to the pump is a pressure fit.

Having to hold the the fill valve nozzle in the the fill valve is the intention with that design Rodger. but is easiest to accomplish if you either mount the valve in the jet, have a compressor...or have 3 hands.
The screw together valves are easier if you are using a hand pump. (only two hands required)

but no threads on the brass needle that goes into the valve mounted to the plane ....you have to hold it in with hand pressure.
here the production Ducts .the added bell mouth makes it easier for the customer to fit the ducts .

PLEASE tell me you didn't use the Wemo pipe... I assume that when you say you made a tail pipe, you made one out of mylar or something...
