Hi group,

I had to disassembly my Brewtus IV but cannot put it back together: I have an issue with the nut that connects the manometer tube (part #35110530) to the steam boiler.
Can somebody tell me the size and pitch of the screw at the steam boiler? It looks like an M9, but is that really the case and what is the pitch?

Thanks
Mookie

For future reference in case somebody needs this information: I found somebody who measured with a thread gauge and apparently the tube connects to a M9 x 1.0 screw

Correction: As a new M9 didn't fit, it finally turned out to be an 1/8" thread. M9 is close, but not close enough.

Since you're mentioning the parts for Expobar Brewtus IV, do you maybe know the type (or name) of the tubes that lead water from the tank to the boiler? I'd like to replace mine because they are old and don't look clean anymore, but last time I tried to order them, I got a wrong type...

You're refering to the soft tubes that are dipped into the tank and go into the pump (not the boiler)? Then it should be:
