Hi Raja and Peter!

I can plot the TPC data for you but I don't remember
what format you wanted.  I can also put it on the web
page.  The data is at the end of this email
for your immediate satisfaction.

About the connectors, wires and o-rings:

If Peter has the gaskets for me then
I can put the connectors into the TPC at any time.
Otherwise I need to get the material and punch
out some gaskets myself.

I have a 2 conductor plus ground to isolated ground
BNC bulkhead connector bushing potted here at Lab 6.
However, to open the TPC, run the wires and repair the
o-rings I will need at least one person to help.
Two people helping would be much better.

Peter, should I use vacuum grease on the gaskets?
