I dunno, I had the same idea about the clones and using parts off them for my Dellorto’s (I use a 15.15 on my mile build and a PHBG 20 on the beefier build). In both cases I found that the Dellortos rarely leaked and were made from strong metal where the clones just didn’t fit right in places and ALWAYS leaked, either immediately or soon after. I only had a few though, so maybe it’s just manufacturing errors?
Anyway, I’ve got a bunch of 14.12 and parts for them laying around so PM me if you’re in need
