If there's enough material, drill n' thread! But I guess the walls are to thin for that. If it's metal you could solder or mod. the endcap in some way....otherwise, saw it off and start again :wink:

drill n' thread where the plastic pipe and a fitting overlaps, that is where it is thickest.

i just drill straight in to the end cap it works for me never leaks and is convenient. try not to drill in to the side of the pipe because it is curved so its not the best fit and will not seal properly in most cases. :D

Darkpyro, I'm assuming you are using o-ring & clamp type seals, for which it could very well matter weather on not the surface is flat. However, if one has tapped a hole, especialy a NPT hole, it will not leak if the surface is curved.

i just drill a hole in the end cap a little to small for the gague and screw it in for a tight fit admitadly i have had one that leaked so i put some type of pressure glue made especialy for that perpose around it. but all the other times it worked fine. :D
