i used a 1/8-27 npt threader and a 5/16th drill bit.i was board


First take off the LPR and LPR adapter.
Remove the valve spring and cupseal/valve pin assembly.
Put a wad of cloth in its place push it to the valve.
Mark the centerline of the reg vertical, and the centerline of the body horizontal, then use a center punch to mark that intersection.
Use a 5/16 drill bit(dont push hard it is soft) and drill the hole.
Make your threads with a 18-27 NPT tap, but dont run the tap in all the way(only enough to get threads). Too much will make the gauge loose and leak. I only ran mine 3/8th''.
Then use thread tape and put a plug in the old gauge port. Dont forget to take the cloth out, I used along screw to grab it. Make sure to get all the shavings out.
Put thread tape on the gauge and install.
Put spring/cupseal/valvepin back in, then LPR adapter, then the LPR, reattach the LP hose and you are done!

Good job Cracker! A long time ago, a memebr of the forum who is no longer with us tried this. He said that he couldn't get it to seal no matter what. Is yours sealing tight?

That is pure genius right there! I never though of that! So did you go in about 3/4 of the way then?

If you'll do a nice little write up on it, as far as how far to go into the body and such, I'll add it to the mods portion of the sticky.

Great job!

Good job, Cracker! Looks nice and clean. I was wondering when someone was going to pull this off.

no it wouldnt. it would be too far in and would not be able to read any accurate psi rating. it would probably not even let any air go into the body. but if you really want to try it. drop 50 bux into a new diablo wrath body and then try it on there.
