5mm is the same size as a #8 bit, and 3/16" bit is close enough the nipples can be threaded in, a reamer would work best. Mine have not leaked from day one, but i also got some tetra fittings for the right angle bends.

Never go full retard!

Buy some tettra fittings and replace the ones that come with the kit. They come with nylon bushings. No leaks.

$5 for a pack of 4 at central hobbies.

I was just installing some tetra fittings in a Pgasser tank tonight. I have fought the leaking fittings before so i thought I'd do this one right the first time. I put double nuts on the inside, used the nylon washers in and out and really cranked the outside nut down. Then it stripped the threads on the fitting. so much for good intentions.

I re-did the first one this way and it hasn't leaked at all since then.
