If the gauge is 400, you can set the working pressure from 0 - 200 psi. Basically, your regulator can be set higher than ones with numbers under 400.
"Dammnit FHF, speak English!"
You got a truck that able to pull 200lbs of Co2, but you only need to haul 10, 20, 50lbs at the most. My truck can only pull 100lb, but I just have a 10lb load.

|quiquik||It just so happens that I picked up Y12 series for under 50.00 and if I understand the low pressure gauge goes to 400 so the working pressure is 200psi. My question, is this reg usless for our intended use or should I move forward and build a post body for it.|

We don't want to go above that 200 psi gauge. (Or a regulator thats rated over 125psi)
|05-28-2015 03:06 PM|
so you need a reg that is rated at 200 psi
& yes it should be dual gauge
material - ppl say brass or stainless is best

The needle just moves a little bit is what he saying. It's a good regulator, I have that model - Y12 series. I took a look online, those prices are ridiculous for a used regulator. Like... all the prices are so high now.
Aim for under 50 if it's still shinny.

|zackariah||Crap!!! here I thought I got a smoking deal. So If I am thinking correctly it will still work but it will be tougher to get a precise working pressure. or am I way off?|

|oldpunk78||No. It doesn't work like that. The regulator needs to produce less psi. The gauge just reads it.|
|05-28-2015 03:28 AM|
|zackariah||so can i just put a low pressure gauge that has lower reading on it?|
|05-28-2015 03:08 AM|
|oldpunk78||It will but you want one that has a lower psi rating. I don't like using them if they have a low pressure gauge that reads over 200 psi.|

H all i am looking to do my first build will this reg body work?

Love the golden look of your rig buddy!

Since reviewing this thread, I decided to make one myself. Educating myself for a week really gave me the confidence to make it happen for I was clueless in what it took to build one. Its really cheap doing it yourself versus buying a high end setup from an aquarium company. Ebay, amazon, other auction sites, sale threads, surplus warehouses, welding shops/websites, etc...deals are out there. You just might not find them all in one day. It could take several days, weeks or months to get that one crucial part you were looking for. I recommend going after your regulator first and then match the finish of that for a nice looking setup.
