cam lock help

Unread postAuthor: JDP12 » Tue Apr 22, 2008 12:13 pm

hey all, i need a set of cam locks for my huge combustion that i am building. mcmaster has them, but not as cam locks, go to the aluminum pipe fittings page and its under pipe to hose adaptors or somethign similar. you should see a picture of one. My problem is that i need help determining which male size will allow 1.5" PVC to go all the way through it in order to make breech loading possible..

help would be wonderful,

I don't know if the metal ones are built the same as the plastic ones, but a 2" plastic one allows 1.5" breech loading if you remove some material from the outside of the barrel. http://www.advancedspuds.com/breech.htm
