Hey team;
Playing with an old portable turning it in to a vacuum only box.

It had a single vac with 1.5” tubing. Going to order dual Ametek Lamb 122176-18 Vacuum Motor Blower 8.4” from kleenrite... but I don’t understand what I need to order/find/modify to hook 2” PVC to the inlet side of the motors.

I mean; there’s always duct tape and/or glue... but y’all are smarter than that (and me).

5 min epoxy in the syringe will glue anything you want to the vac motor. I slowly bend a flange on 2" aluminum tube with 2 cresent wrenches and epoxy them on just as the mixed epoxy starts to firm up a little. I'm sure others have their own way.

Next step; current setup has a 1.5” caged ball float - I know there’s a 2” version from mytee; is that the best solution?
