The 2 spaces for inserting the wick look pretty big. Try wicking as normal then experiment by packing out these spaces either side of the wick with a little extra cotton

Thanks. I've tried every possible wicking method without luck. When the liquid reaches the middle of the tank it starts to gurgle.

It doesn't matter. The Tripod is a bit over-engineered for my liking, too many pieces, which makes the cleaning process tedious.



Gurgling is usually a vacuum issue, Check your O-rings. I had to be very careful putting mine back together cause of O-ring fitment.
I had to lube up both the rings & part to get them together with out moving the O-ring out of place :(
There are 2 between the AFC & the main deck piece that could easily go out of place & not be noticed!

Two o-rings? I can only see one.

And yes, it's fucked.

Now the issue is to remember where I kept the original packaging.

Ya know that would probably do it! Just a tiny flaw can cause a micro leak in the vacuum & it floods & gurgles :(
If you remove the screw on the 510, the deck & AFC ring separate & down in there, there are 2 more O-Rings :(

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

Had to strip my no-name Tripod completely down to get it to stop leaking. Run it with the JFC almost completely closed off. Still don’t trust it though and watch it like a hawk. I never put it on a mod that I can’t afford to lose.
