I just about completely filled the dump using 8 nickels, and was still unable to get the vent to "vent" when the reg was cranked out to its max setting.

So that idea might be a dead end, at least as far as a "drop in" solution. That aftermarket safety vent might be the easiest current solution, though I'd rather find one that was externally adjustable.
