So I recently switched my Pure Energy tank reg over to low pressure. Everything went fine and dandy and I'm fairly certain I did everything right. However, after putting everything back together, the pin is very low, about a quarter inch down past the actual opening in the reg where the threads are. Obviously I had to drain the tank before switching the reg over. So is this normal for a drained tank to have the pin down that far, and it will just pop up and seal as soon as I get air in there? Or will I end up with my tank leaking like crazy...
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance

can you post a pic? usually when a pin is not high enough the pin valve spring may not be in the reg.

if you tip the reg upside down and look at the pin and it goes all the way forward where it should be but drops back down when you turn it right side up then you are missing the pin valve spring.

Ah! Got it. Spring was on the wrong side of the pin. Thank you sir.
