I've seen a few threads on this, but can't find any specific instructions.

I have air leaking out of the bleed hole in the reg. When I got the reg the 2 parts weren't very tight and I accidentally loosened the bottom half and then problem right...WRONG.

So from everything I've seen, I must have a busted O-Ring, but now I can't separate the 2 halves. Off to Home Depot to get a cloth strap wrench to disassemble. Hopefully it is a broken O-ring, but if it is and I replace it how in the world do I put the reg back together without breaking another O-ring? Do I loctite the halves together when finished?

The reg has only about 300 rounds through it so I can't think of any other problems.

Any help would be appreciated!

Don't use Loc-tite on it, only hand tighten the parts. When you reassemble it make sure the brass piece is properly in place. put them together upside down to insure it doesn't slip. Put a dop of oil on the orings to help them seal. If you still have problems send it to AKA and they'll take care of it.
