Out of the pit thread on a 1 1/4" threaded tee with 2 close nipples, one on top and bottom. On the bottom screw on your ball valve. On the top screw on a 1 1/4" female threaded by 1 1/2" socket bushing, then glue a 3" x 1 1/2" reducer to the bushing. Afetr putting it together get a level and mark a level line on the reducer about 1/8" below the top of the water pan (with the door open) and trim off excess reducer. This way you will never overfill your water pan since the level in the funnel will be the same level in the water pan.
ps: Make 2 while you are making one. eventually it will crack from the heat and start leaking. after making and replacing two sets I made one from steel and it had to be welded.
