Regulator Only

 

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.
