I have just stripped down my CCR carefully drying off my O2 solenoid and reached for my dust caps. B88**& where the &**K did I put them......

Now while I am methodical about my approach to assembly and dis-assembly/cleaning, these little darling seem to have a mind of their own turning up next to my O2 grease, in my computer box, spares box, boat bag and once even in my dry-gloves.

Need some inspiration here !

Where do you keep your dust caps ?

Best system for any caps i've found is to mimic what you've taken it off from fixed on the inside
lid of a box/crate etc. Not only do you know where it is, can't get crud on the threads etc.

More or less as Tel says, mine go onto the blanking caps that I have on my cylinders to keep them both paired and clean.

I have a few in the box of stuff without purpose. I can post you spares if you want :)

Hang on. You got me at

I have just stripped down my CCR
What's broken? How can we help fix things?

Dust caps?I'm assuming we're talking here about the 9/16" caps that screw onto the solenoid inlet & feed hose to prevent any water ingress.

Unlike the DIN plugs we discussed the other day, these are very handy when you're separating the solenoid from the feed in a potentially wet/damp environment. Rusty solenoids are not something we wish to deal with.

No need to disassemble solenoid bit on a sentinel - doesn't go wrong ;)

More because you don't take the head "off" a sentinel like you do a JJ when you change the scrubber, head plus solenoid stays in place and connected to the o2 feed manifold via narrow bore stainless pipe work

My JJ travelled up to Northampton last week with a dust cap in place and came back fixed, with the dust cap still in situ.

Ah makes sense. I was assuming reg dust caps.

If you have any spare spares, I could do with a set. :)

I don't disconnect the solenoid on my AP Inspiration either - I have an Alibox so can remove the scrubber canister without taking the lid out of the box.

thanks all, so the suggestions is to mimic stuff in fixed position, or get into the habit of using your spares box. I use a Gbox, I think it's the spares box then unless I might find a conveniently sized hole in the lid and use that :think:
