    Help get Regulator out of tank?

    Guys I have been pulling twisting and just can't get the stock regulater out of the gast tank to install the RRPR.
    Any help would be great.

    The first time I removed mine I had to use a screw driver to pry up on the bottom edge of the stock regulator. Also, be careful the plastic vent tube next to the regulator is fragile.

    I applied a small amount of synthetic grease on the O ring, made life much easier.

    Looks like I am not the only one that snapped off the vent tube

    OK, I got her all in and I must say I love were I mounted my Gauge.
    I will post latter. I need to get ready for some searious numbers.

    Tips, Pry with a screw driver just a bit on both sides..

    Don't remove the baffle, but if you do, you need to make sure the Big black O-ring is seated in the screw holes correctly are you will not get the Baffle back and seated to the tank wright.

    Vasoline the RRPR O-rings and make sure it snaps all the way in.

    Hope all this helps the next guy!

    I know no one knows better than you. Watch out for any kind of leaks and extra fumes under that seat.
