    Bits power has the best modding kit for d5 pumps (if you refer of kits), also it came with pretty good manual of how to do it.

    Remove the pump from the housing get a tap for G 1/4 tread and tap the two holes with it. clean it out with running water and put it back together.
    Or buy the aftermarket housing for better head pressure and install as shown in the modding guide

    What you need to do it take the top off the pump.

    Then you need to carefully saw off the stock nipple like this:



    Then you can use the G 1/4" Tap to make the treads and the fittings can be used like so:

    Kenny is correct cut just below the nipple first then use the tap to thread the holes go slow with the tap and back it up after a couple of turns and go back down till
    its treaded deep enough for the compression fittings, and you should be fine.

    Or for $30 bucks pick this up you will get better flow and more head pressure by adding this to the pump you removed.

    Default Re: Need to mod my D5 pump top.

    Make sure you secure it before drilling and taping so you can get a perfectly straight cut, if you have a vise to place it in
    protect it with some rags or two pieces of wood between the jaws so you don't damage it! it will make your job that much easier to do.
    If you Fluck it up, I have a spare I will send you.
