Stacy1 You did a great job of breaking things down to where someone like me who has never messed around with regulators could understand how to assemble one. Thanks for taking the time to do it for us noobs

oldpunk78 There was a problem with that particular photobucket account. I ain't doing that again. It took like whole Saturday lol.

Stacy1 Took a couple of days but I finally made it through all 51 pages of this thread. I agree that it would be nice to have the pics back

crice8 I concur. It would be great if someone with experience could provide new pics.

APynckel imgur is a great photo host if you used it instead of photobucket.

sgtsquiggs Any chance on this post being rewritten? All of the images are missing.

hoping links are ok - try . got a chrome plated with filter for 11 bucks and the nut for four plus free shipping. they also have a large stainless offering on another page. in case the link is lost search Evergreen Midwest Co.

oldpunk78 No. They're individual websites.

lemonyx Thanks oldpunk78 for the info, really helps. I have a nice ss Harris but I have brass all over and the saltwater is corroding it

Are these both on ebay?

oldpunk78 Zorotools and e&s technologies have the ss nut and nipple for fair prices. You can order the chrome set from Victor has a nice chrome set you can find but you need to search the part number and I do t remember it anymore. Sometimes people here on the forum will have extra. You could try a wtb thread.

zackariah ^ it is up and running. And working great. As far as the valve on the lower left I'm sure it can but I don't see a reason to remove it. It seems to be another way to adjust the pressure.

quiquik Hey zackariah the valve on the main body of the reg... lower left, can that be taken off and plugged? and have you tested the setup yet?

zackariah Got it done here is the final product
Attachment 485001

Needle valve Is a bit touchy but other than that I'm happy with it. Especially since I did not have to spend $250+
