1. I have been doing all my own work and can easily put those parts together,Should I or take it to a pro?
2.what is the pipe with the cap on it for?
3.what are you using for tubing to connect to the fryer/flattop?
If you are capable then do it yourself. I did mine but I also have worked for a large metro area gas company. Just use good pipe dope on the threaded pipe and not the parts of flexible hose connections where they have compression or flare type fittings. Those are meant to seal themselves when tightened properly. You should also do thorough leak check using dish soap / water solution after pressure is applied to your pipes. With a brush of some sort apply the solution to all threaded connections and check for bubbles.
THe pipe pointing downward with the cap is a drip tee to catch any particles before the gas goes into the regulators / appliances. The tee that has the plug is just done this way incase I wanted to add something or whatever. I could just tap into this part of it. (at least I think thats what I was thinking, lol. Maybe I just didn't have other fitting so I used what I had.)
Here is a pic of the tubing I used. They come with the silver fittings you see in the pic I posted on your thread yesterday and have swiveled flared ends installed on them already. On those ends with flare you do not put any dope or teflon tape on them(don't use teflon tape for gas in general). Only the non flared ends get dope. If you do dope them they will leak for sure. The tubing I purchased from Menards in the appliance installation section if I remember right.
