Q: My valve is leaking out the back, is it time to replace the regulator piston?How do i take out the regulator piston?
A: It could be several things
1) dirt on the reg seat
2) shooting hot
3) the reg piston working and blowing off extra pressure. This can come from installing a Lvl 10.
The simpler fixes are to clean the reg seat and check the velocity. You can get to the reg piston by unscrewing the regulator halves, taking out the velocity nut and spring pack and pushing the piston out the back.
