Default Bal valve tap onto Burco boiler

Managed to get hold of a Burco boiler, taken the tap off and made 15mm hole using max cutter.
The outer skin already has much larger hole, and now need to fit ball valve, which I already have. What other bits do I need eg couplers to fit it all together and make leak-proof. Not very technical minded so any basic instructions gratefully received

What you need.

Nipple
3 Rubber/PVC washers
2 Lock Nuts
Coupler (Optional)

The Nipple goes through the hole, on the inside you need a rubber/pvc washer against the kettle wall, a metal washer behind that then a lock nut. On the outside a rubber/pvc washer against the wall again, metal washer, lock nut, rubber/pvc washer then your tap.

Coupler on the inside if you want to attach a bazooka screen or false bottom.

This shows all the parts you need - http://www.the-home-brew-shop.co.uk/...me-Brewing.jpg

Its called a hose tail on here. Ordered one yesterday but like you i am looking for the rest of the parts apart from the tap. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1214850083...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
Making my head hurt. Beginning to wish i bought one already assembled but trying to save cash ordered the tap from HK.

They dont have any silicon seals left, any idea if they are on ebay? Not having any joy finding any. I like the idea of the washers and those. Already had a few leaks on my ace due to not getting it tight enough.

Thanks. I bought the "3 piece weldless tap kit with 1/2 hosetail take off"
for £19.25 and according to their website i get the £4.75 postage refunded when they open.
Best deal i have seen as far as i can tell. by the time you find anyone selling all the other parts gonna cost close to that with postage.
