I am not sure if I will or not. My pack has been done since October of last year at this point. I have a lot of photos of my build in this research thread, so I do not know if any service could be had if I had a specific build thread .

JMF 3/8" x 1/4" Compression Union
(You need 1 of these on the left of the EDA)

NOTE: The Legris straights on the pack were replaced with JMF 1/8" x 1/4" Compression Union. I don't have these on hand yet to share photos of.
OK so the 1/8x1/4 compression union doesn't exist. 1/8 is to small for the red hose. 1/8 is 3.18mm the hose size is 4mm. This is why they use the smc 4mm. 4mm hose will need 5/32 fitting. You can find this on gbfans.com

They do exist as I have some of them. But you are correct that they were the wrong size. The reason I originally went with that size was due to photo scaling. I did end up finding some 5/32 fittings that are currently on my pack.

There was an individual in one of the facebook groups I belong to that ended up replicating that specific hose. I'd have to pull my pack out of storage to measure the outer diameter of the hosing for you.

Hey I went to a plumbing and hydraulic hose store in one! I measured the proton pack side fittings and have settled on 3/16 brass fittings. This is larger and looks right! The red hose is still able to fix inside with a bit of room. The opening is a bit bigger than 4.5mm. This .188 of an inch

I am assuming you want to change the screws on the bumper and bottom of the pack...plus the one by the metal v hook. I used 1/4-20 3/8 worked well. I used a 7/32 drill bit before screwing the 1/4-20 in. The screws will cut in and hold without glue! If you need reference video look for proton pack is not a toy on YouTube! He is awesome and in the comments is the better screw size to use not what he used.

Yah I am but I’ve seen conflicting info on whether to use 1/4-20 or 10-32. Mack’s factory uses 10-32 and they are basing it off the super hero pack but I know the gb1 hero pack uses 1/4-20 socket caps. So I dunno

Does anyone know what is the correct name of the JST two pin connector.... for example jst ph 2 pin. I would like to put in the talentcell and want to purchase the connector and usb and wire it up myself. I just don't see the point in paying an increased price for something so simple.I just may have to open it up and take a look.

My pack is not a Haslab pack. Mine is made the same way the ones for the film were made. My wand is fully aluminum made by the same person that made them for the film. I also created my own electronics.

They're definitely socket cap screws. They look pretty small, so probably 4-40.
