Hi All

Hoping I can get a little help with this one.

This appears to be a 10 gallon conversion to a 5 gallon Fry but do these parts look like something supplied by Fry or something someone just pieced together to convert it?

Thanks

It's actually a 5 gallon fry converted to 10 gallon. The jar base is correct for the conversion. I have a few around here, left over from me converting them back to 5 gallon.

Thank you for the reply

Do you know what the top would the top look like? The jar lid doesn't look like anything I've seen on a Fry117.

Rush apparently bought out Fry and converted their Fry pumps as well. We have a ten gallon Fry to Rush conversion here, but it doesnt match what you have. Although I'm not sure what Rush did with the 5 gallon Frys, the one we have was a ten gallon conversion to Rush components.

Here's what I had on my Fry 5 gal. to 10 gal. conversion. I was told this is/was a Rush conversion... I no longer have the parts.

Hopefully helpful...

Yeah that looks like a Rush conversion parts. Rush brought the rods outside of the cylinder in a little, and used a taller, smaller diameter tank. I actually like these Rush conversion better then normal Frys. From a functional point of view, they are definitely better.

Does the 5 gallon conversion use the same top cover as the 10 gallon?
