Thanks, RG. Suspicions confirmed. This means the new pipe is just a hunk of 5/8" tubing, just as the old one was a hunk of 3/4" It also means that the new pipe is not compatible with the old LIM, and the reduced diameter pipe remains a much less expensive option for those wanting to get the heat off the plastic.
I am getting closer and closer to being able to offer BC members a reasonably priced alternative to the KenCo kit. Just need another week or so to do some real-world tests to optimize the installation procedure for the sleeve, for those who want to do it themselves. Bob Dillon is already testing his method of sleeving the uppers for those who want to have it done.
I think we will solve this problem technically and economically.
