Need a little help figuring out how to use the assembling machine with fluids

Hello, this is my first post here. I've been casually playing this mod pack for about 2 weeks now and really enjoying it but I've hit a little wall.

So I'm on the last step of making the Electric Blast Furnace through the quest. I need to craft 16 Cupronickel Coil Blocks in the basic assembling machine. I have everything needed including the liquid tin, however I cannot figure out how to get the liquid tin into the assembling machine. I have an Iron tank with the liquid in it and I have a small bronze fluid pipe connecting it to the assembling machine. I've used an Electric Pump (LV) to pump from the tank and into the pipe but the fluid won't go from the pipe into the assembling machine. I've tried attaching a second Electric Pump to the assembling machine but not getting the fluid to flow from the pipe into the machine still. Been at this for the whole day and took to the internet for help but have not found anything so I found this forum and here I am!

lol thank you for the help if anyone out there is able to help me through this step!

Right click the LV pump with a screwdriver, that will change it's mode to input into the pipe

In addition to reconfiguring the pump with the screwdriver, you are able to melt the tin in a fluid extractor, and thwn have it output automatically into an adjacent assembly machine or a pipe leading to the assembly machine.

Thank you. I actually ended up using the fluid extractor method. I was attempting to use the LV pump with the screwdriver, that never worked and still doesn't work no matter what configuration I set it to with the screwdriver.

Did you get the liquid tin in your first post from the smeltery? Because gregtech machines don't accept tinkers construct fluids.

Oh yes, I did get it from the smeltery, that explains the problem then, thanks!

Well I hit another snag, I hope no one minds if I just use this thread whenever I get stuck on something lol. I'm now trying to make Molten Lead for an assembly machine recipe. So I have the fluid extractor positioned underneath the assembly machine. Have my copper wire going to the machine. When I insert a lead ingot or lead dust absolutely nothing happens. I've double checked the recipes to make sure these items work in the fluid extractor and as far as I can tell they should be 100% working... not sure whats going on but its late for me so thought I'd come here to rant and try again the next day lol.

If you look below the recipe for lead in the fluid extractor you'll see that it requires 34 eu/t, your lv fluidextractor has a runs on 32 eu/t so you'll need an mv fluid extractor for lead. What is it you're trying to make? maybe you can use a different metal e.g. tin or solderingalloy.

Ah now I feel dumb haha. To be fair I still have a lot of learning about how EU works and how not to blow up stuff. I'm working on it lol, know any good guides on that subject?

As for what I'm trying to craft, it's hard to remember without having the client open to look. I'm trying to do the very first quest in Steve's carts. I think it was the cart assembler and I'm trying to make the green computer chip thing that I can't remember the name of. That's the assembly machine recipe with the molten lead that I was going for.

The gtnh wiki has a pretty extensive page on electricity https://gtnh.miraheze.org/wiki/Electricity

As for the Steve's carts simple PCB's you can use soldring alloy or tin as well. Generally soldering alloy is best for these kind of things. ( 9 tin + 1 antimony = 10 soldering alloy) If you don't have any antimony (you find it in terahidrite veins in the nether) just use regular tin.

Also, there's no need to feel dumb :d Things in gregtech are not meant to be obvious or easy, I made my fair share of mistakes before I got the hang of it. That time I blew up 2 Electronic blast furnaces comes to mind. xD
