Hey Guys, After I got the lock inlet which is fitting great as well as the barrel my touch hole is below the top of the pan. All the books say to have it right inline with the top of the pan but I'm below that by at least one hole size.
I know I can make a liner and drill the hole where it needs to be but I want a stainless steel liner or can I just lower the depth of the pan instead?

Some end up that way, try it and see how it works, some of the absolutes we are told we must have are not always so absolute.

The rule for top of the pan and center is optimal . It doesn’t mean that if its somewhere else that it wont work .
You just don’t want it so low in the pan that your covering it with powder .
Run with it and see how she works . If you end up having issues make you a new liner or deepen the pan alittle
