lets put it this way. The stock macro lines stinks. If i change macro lines would I have to change the connector on the mini-reg as well? and what macro line (or any other hose for that matter) would you recommend that comes out easily so i can oil it easier

Just get a new macroline kit for $10-$20 and it will have fittings that are easily removable.

You mean the 90 degree elbow? the little metal thing that u put the macroline in and out of? If so the kit comes with 2 of those, you will prolly need to take the one outta the mimi reg and put the one that comes with the kit in, shouldnt be to hard. If i did not get you right, please correct me.

Just get a smaller monkey wrench put it around the fitting and take it off. The new macroline kits will come with a dark yellow thread sealer already in place...all you have to do is remove the current fittings and clean out the inside of the threads so that no debris go into the gun through the reg and possibly mess up your gun. I usually use a dental pick and run it through the threads a few times to clean it out and then put the new fitting on. If you don't have faith in yourself getting it done, just take it to your local shop and I'm sure they wouldn't have a problem installing it for you.

Good Luck

Anything will do, it's all the same stuff. Just make sure you select what you want, 2 90* elbows, 1 90* and 1 straight, all sorts of configurations are available.

Nope you can keep the same connectors. All macro line is basicly the same diameter so the Macro line fittings that are on your gun right niow is fine.

I would recommend chaing the fittings because the fittings WDP gives you, gives you a hard time trying to take the line out.

Duct tape.

Let me help the crew here abit. Wrap your Mini reg in strips of duct tape about 1/2 inch thick to grab the mini reg without scratching it. Then you wont have any problems marring your phat anno.

I have found that using a cordless impact makes it a lot easier.
