  1. Hi everyone, I have an issue that's probably more common sense than I'll admit to myself. I've just purchased an Ikelite 5510.22 port body to replace the smaller 5510.16 that I had been using and I'm stumped. I assumed that the body would mate to my 8" port just as the .16 had and I was wrong. In tightening the new port body down it threads initially but gets too tight without coming close to making a seal. I replaced the old port body just to verify the fit and it mated without an issue. Then I swapped o-rings, cleaned and checked the threads and inspected for any warping on the body and still nothing. Neither ikelite or adorama keep reasonable business hours for someone living in Hawaii and ikelite's frequently asked questions somehow seem to exclude the possibility of anyone having a similar issue so I'll put it out there...anyone have any idea what's going on here? Why can't I screw the 5510.22 into the port assembly? I'd really like to dive this setup in the morning but there's no way I'm putting an already touchy housing in the water with a 1/4" gap between the port and body. Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom here! Cheers, Jim
