im pretty sure that the part that he bolted into the tee has one or two o-rings in it. that would seal it up pretty well.

The bolts just hole that bulkhead in place, I have a supah valve, and I think the are roughly the same setup. There is a piston in there that is on a guide rod that is attached to that bulkhead. I think that becuase of its close tolerances it is a perfect seal, I could be wrong with that.

It has 2 large O-Rings, the bolts keep the back from coming out.

i think they are normal O rings, but the groove that they fit in is deep.

i dont own a mauler valve, but if i made it thats how i would do it, but unfortunately im not sgort, so i dont know. :cry:
