  Hornet Sparker

If using a lantern lighter this tip comes in handy.  I suggest straying away from BBQ igniters on any gun.  

This tip is for installing the sparker. This tip is necessary on the Green Hornet, since the sparker is installed through a double layer of PVC fittings. This tip may also be needed on other potato guns. The problem originates from the nut on the lantern lighter being too short. The way to overcome this obstacle is to take the nut off the sparker.  Next drill a hole slightly smaller than the sparker.  Now screw the sparker into the gun from the inside.  The sparker will tap it's own threads into the PVC, resulting in no leaks, and no way for the sparker to come out.  

If any mistakes are made and there is a leak, you can use an epoxy such as JB-Weld around the threads of the lantern lighter.
