Daz, you're amazing. I ordered Sunday night, item shipped Xpresspost on Monday morning, here this afternoon.

Just make sure I win that Little Devil case, okay?

Wink

You are taking the compression fitting cap off first?

Disassemble the fitting.
Tighten barb to block,res., rad etc...
Slide cap on to tube,
Then push tube on to the fittings barb.
Slide the cap down to the fitting a tighten.

If the tube seems tight to slide on to the barb then put the end of the tube in warm water for 10sec's to soften tubing a little then try to put on barb.
Hopefully this was of some help.

I have about 50 of those fitting in use and haven't had an issue yet.

Don't try to push the tube straight on. Attack the fitting with the tube from about a 45 angle then slide the tube over the fitting by rolling/rotating the tube around the fitting.
Best I can do for verbal directions.

Pot of hot = boiled distilled water. Heats and lubes the fittings and tube.

I had feser fittings and primochill pro lrt
And your right , primochill tubing is not t.he same size as feser or xspc tubing
The tubing wall is ticker than other brand
And very hard to install but it work
First the ID
You need lub and push hard, all my fittings are still feser and it work
OD, the otside of fitting are very tight on pro lrt tubing, i use just a little bit or vegetable oil
Now i have feser tubing on feser fitting and everything is normal, no tight tubing

The problem is not your fittings but primochill tubing, its siwdwall size are littlebit ticker
