Q: The vacuum pump fitting doesn't match the easy connect NPT parts supplied. How do I make it work?
A: You will have to remove the flared fitting that your vacuum pump comes with standard and replace it with the 1/2" or 3/8" easy connect fitting supplied with your press depending on model. Most vacuum pumps are ACME threaded which is a little different than NPT. Once you remove the standard fitting it will rethread to work with the NPT included.
