I think he means shortening the shank, not turning it down.
I looked at a couple of my Conn's. I see a gap between the end of the mouthpipe taper and the rest of the mouthpipe, but I don't seem to have a lip. I used a toothpick as suggested and a depth gauge. Neither will catch st the "gap." Is the gap "issue" a Bach structure only?
I'll bet you're right. Sorry about that.
As for Conns, I don't believe the old Conn trumpets have a lip in the receiver, and a lot of cornets don't, either. Most modern trumpets do have the lip, though. Even though there's no gap, the Conn Loyalist has an article on the insertion depth of mouthpieces on those old receivers:

if gap is space. and the mouthpiece goes to deep, creating less space between that lip and MP, then to increase it use tape and or cut shank. am I not understanding the problem properly?
I see Gzent make it clear my intent. thanks
