    Between the TH350 and the adapter is nothing more than a large O-ring seal. Should be easy to change once you have that HEAVY 203 out of your way.

    While your replacing the "o ring" add a little The "right stuff" around it, it'll never leak again. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    There is also a gasket between the adaptor and the 203.
