ok so my new larger bottle will be here in the next few days. Looking over the flex regulator. i noticed a big issue with these setups. the output gauge reads to 6k psi. this is senseless. should only have a 3k psi gauge on the output for better resolution when setting out put. the way they are currently one would have to have a an external tester to dial in as the resolution is not fine enough as is. One would basically be guessing on the output set point. I'm sure its a micro gauge. but what size and thread would i need to find to replace the 6k gauge with a 3k gauge so it would work and adjustments can be made more precise?
just found an issue with my foster fitting on my flex reg leaking. it is from the inside of this fitting, not where the fitting goes into the regulator. i went to put a few drops of oil in and noticed bubbles. can these be rebuilt of does the foster fill fitting need to be replaced altogether?i thought i was losing air, but thought it was just my imagination. low and behold it is. kinda odd, as i fill from a yung heng compressor. so top offs are no issue for me.
Here is a trick I use a lot. Take a hard 1 1/2" to 3" rod that is about 1/8" in diameter like a nail, pop rivet or section of drill rod. Place the rod inside the foster fitting so it is all the way in take something hard but but not heavy. Something like a 3/4" wrench or you can use a pair of channel lock pliers.While the rod is in the foster fitting you just tap the rod end with the wrench or pliers and and you will hear the poppet in the fost fitting snap some air and typically it will align correctly and stop leaking.
