NOTE: Be careful which regulator you buy if you plan to remove the large hose barb and the shutoff valve and connect it directly to a needle valve. Apparently some regulators are built using nonstandard threads. I found one such. The result was I could not remove the unnecessary parts and connect my needle valve. Their female output was not quite Ό NPT so my connection failed.
I have been able to make this change successfully with the 9T852 (Taprite 742) available from Rapids Wholesale.
