To seal off the back of mine, i cut a pill bottle down to size and wrapped it in tape and put it in. I bolted it to the piston with the nut that holds on the sealing face.

it could be easier to make a 3" tee piston, if you have the parts needed readily available, but i would say generaly its easier to make smaller pistons (to a certain point, a 1mm piston would be pretty hard :wink: )
