Tank wobbles/moves
Hi, when I open the juiceflow just a bit, the upper Part of the tank moves a bit.
It's hard to describe.

Does anyone had that problem and was able to fix it?

could be a bad o ring, replace both of them under the deck, there should'nt be any play in it when unscrewing it for the juiceflow, unless you are nearly screwing it apart, i do about 4-5 quarter turns now as im using 80 vg at 50 /50 it onnly needed 2-3 twists

There's nothing special about o-rings, they're off the shelf industrial parts and buying them at 10000% markup doesn't make them any more likely to fit. The likelihood of you finding a perfect fit correlates to how many sizes and materials of ring you have in your bits box.
You could always try the old "wind some dental floss under the ring" trick.

The one thing i do the most cause im too cheap/lazy for find and buy new orings ;)



You take off the oring your having issues with not sealing, wrap a bit of floss around the divet the oring sits in and put the oring back over it. It "thickens" up the oring to help it seal more properly, without finding a new oring.

In a drop top Chevy with the roof wide open, my partners looking at me to see if my eyes open cause I've been drankin and I've Been smokin'

Just what it sounds like. Get some waxed dental floss and wind it tightly into the channel. Ring has less space on the inside, making it a tighter fit on the outside.

I'd actually try to disassemble the whole deck and make sure everything is tight because there are additive tolerances in the design of the atomizer. I did replace the o-rings. There is a picture on svoemestos site and one here floating around on some threads.

i had something similar, i was convinced that the tank section had suddenly become loose. it turns out that the 510 screw had come loose, so the baseplate was a bit wobbly.

Thanks all - I'll try it with the floss and the center pin after I'm done working.
