    tightening LPR in sleeper frame?

    Using a tickler and the nut is 9/16". However, getting a wrench in there to tighten is pretty near impossible. Do most people just teflon tape the crap out of it and hope they get it tight enough or is there a trick I'm missing? I have some needle nose pliers, but not wanting to mangle the nut all up getting it tight.

    take the body off the lower 1/8th npt fitting that has the 9/16th'' nut.
    then take a 9/16th'' socket and put it over thatnut. i use a drll driver adapter to put into the back of the sock and then use a 1/4'' mini wrench to put over the adapter to tighten things down.

    here is quick 42 second video explaining better:

    since im sure he is not using the same exact frame you did, i am pretty sure he will not have the space you have.

    <B>OPBN</B> if you dont have the tool send it my way ill get it in for you. but im prtty sure you can get ahold of something that will work as i explained in the video.

    I know, I was just saying since it was a general 'sleeper frame LPR' question.

    I should have specified which frame I am using, but I have had a thread or two lately about the build so I figured a regular would know it was the Chimera that I am working on. Might try pulling the body off the LPR and tightening with a socket. Even using a wrench would be easier without the body on, so not a bad idea. Thanks.

    Edit: Fit is too tight, socket will not work either even with the body of the LPR off. Think I may be able to mill/file the frame down some for some additional clearance.
