    Hi everyone,

    I have my eyes on an HPT500 regulator but the outlet has an extra Diaphragm valve 1/4" female NPT (DK4F model). If I get it, shall I get rid of the extra valve or get some (yet unknown) connector to go from 1/4 to 1/8?
    Is this extra diaphragm valve used for something?

    Many thanks!

    Typically a shut off valve, many will have a compression type fitting attached.
    Looks like you also need a CGA320 stem and nut for this too.

    If gauges are not scaled to your liking I could recommend an online resource @ about $11 per stainless gauge and glycerin filled?

    The needle valve on the left is for flow control. It’s not as precise.
    Your entire post body will be after that.

    The right side stem will need to be removed and replaced with a CGA320 as @Phishless mentioned.
    That will be a 1/4 NPT

    The CGA320 was obvious of course :)
    Do you think it's worth keeping the valve? I could also remove it and do my post body after the regulator, right?

    I threw mine away. In which case most likely the output is 1/4 NPT

    Could you send your online source for glycerin SS gauges? I’m looking for a new set now and that is a great price!
    Thank you
