Milwaukee MA957 bubble counter

I just got a MA957 and as I want to use it with a paintball co2 tank, I was wondering how would I get the bubble counter straight if I want the tank to stand strait too? Should I just unscrew the needle valve one quart of a turn?

No, you can't. You have to use an inline bubble counter.

You can try tightening it 3/4 of a turn.

That may make the bubble counter perpendicular to the floor. Loosening it is not recommended.

Remove the needle valve, clean out the threads, but a fairly thick layer of teflon tape on it, and re-tighten. You'll be able to get the angle you want.
