I have the same setup as the OP and I was wondering one thing. When I took apart the Stab to rebulid it the metal washer was at the top of the spring (closer to the gun) not at the bottom (near the adjustment screw). I was wondering if I should leave it like this, or change it? Or does it really matter?

Of course it matters, and with what you describe, the reg could not have even worked. Adjusting screw has to push on that steel disc to push on the spring.

Yea thats what I figured. When I reassembled it I placed the washer near the end of the spring just like in the video, I was just perplexed as to why it was misplaced to begin with.

Thanks

You can rest assured that it wasn't missplace to begin with. Sometime between it's beginning and now, someone had it apart and didn't put it back together right.

The video is helpful, but I cannot get the cap off of my stabilizer using a nickel. It seems to be stuck on there permanently. Does palmers sometimes install the cap using thread-locker? Or are the threads reversed?

They just stick sometimes...

Try holding the nickel with a pair of pliers or vice grips. Make sure you've removed the adjusting screw.

I did try using a vice grip to hold the nickel... I end up bending the nickel and stripped the knotch! It's not just stuck, they must have put permanent thread-locker in there.

Palmer's does not use any thread locker on the adjusting cap of their regulators.

Try putting a open flame, ex:lighter, on it to heat it up then try screwing it apart. The flame won't hurt the anno.

^^^^ What he said.
More heat than a lighter might be needed. If you have an electric stove, you can rest the end of the Stab on the outside coil to heat just the end of the unit, which will expand the tube slightly and make it easier to get the cap out. It shouldn't be that hard to get out, though it IS neccessary to remove the adjusting screw or you may never get the cap out with the spring pressure on it.

I took at the adjust screw from the start and have tried several tricks, including heating it over the stove. At this point, I am certain that something is very wrong (possibly it sat on the shelf for a couple of years and the threads corroded together). I am worried about voiding the warrantee through drastic measures. This stabilizer is going back to the place of its birth for service by PPS.

Thanks for everyone's help, though.

I only have triflow and dow33... anyone used those to lube their stabs with good results? I need to have it done soon so I don't think online stores will make it on time, so I am hoping to lube with what I have in hand...

otherwise, where can I go in person to buy some Air Tool Oil? I'm in San Diego...
