    Default Site Glass Changing ?

    Anyone removed/replaced the site glass in a 6F power feed?
    Is it just a press in out job? I can't see any threads or a pinch clip.

    Looks like a press in but don't have one on hand to check.

    Probably since I'm so cheap, I'll try to press out the old one and reuse it. But they can be had for less than $20 new, just in case it brakes
    I'm betting they press in from the outside?
    Thanks for all the info.

    Not 100% sure but I think most of them are just mounted in a rubber grommet. I wouldn't reuse the rubber part and risk a leak.

    Just tap it out and tap it in. Super simple.

    From the outside or inside? Or does it matter?

    Well, I have only ever done it one way. Tap it out the front, and in from the front. TBH I have never tried it the other way.

    Just like Barry saying you can install a Bridgeport belt upside down lol

    There is no rubber seal, at least not on the one I just got.
    Just metal.
