Specifically the Regulator assembly
207 forum posts
Hi, Just been firing up a friends Polly II built around 1978 for a shake down and found an issue with the regulator. It seemed to be stuck in the closed position and when opened it looks to be unscrewing itself rather than opening the valve.
My question is if I remove the bolts off the backhead and try to withdraw the regulator should it come out as an assembly and can I then use threadlock to stop it unscrewing itself?
I am assuming that the assembly is threaded and not a press fit even though the plans don't show any threading.
Any advice will be gratefully received.
