Situating a reg

I hope this is an easy one. I've installed a new vertical ASA on my Prostock, and the HPR's macro fitting no longer comes out the back toward the grip. Is there an easy/good way to rotate the reg, so that it will be fully screwed into the vertical ASA AND the fitting will be in the right place? Pictures tell the story:

Vertical ASA #1 (old), with macro fitting where it belongs:



Vertical ASA #2 (new), with macro fitting headed off into the ether:



Note that although there are two ports on the reg for the macro, neither is positioned correctly with the new vertical ASA. Even with the vertical ASA angled backwards, the ports still don't line up. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!
Chris

find a big fat oring and put it on the reg, so that when you screw it in, the oring smushes and stops the reg from screwing in all the way....

In that last picture, it looks close enough that if you were to unscrew it the half turn or so until it lines up, it should still seal. When you air the gun up it wont wobble and should be fine.

Ninja makes tank reg clips to help situate those using one or an o-ring like stanchy suggested should work.

Never even occurred to me to try it without snugging down the reg. I did...seals fine. I'll throw a big fat o-ring in there for good measure, too. I'm feeling a little silly. Thanks, for all the suggestions.

palmer's also makes delrin spacers. They sometimes work, but I found on some setups they still don't get it quite right.

Why don't you just switch the macroline fitting and the plug? It looks like it would work perfectly if switched. A lot of people think the plug is for the output of the reg but it's just another input...

Good thought, but it doesn't line up quite right. Still about 15 degrees off. No big deal, though...per sniper42's suggestion, the reg seals fine without snugging it down the whole way.

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions.

Follow super_stanchy recommendation. Use HPA or CO2 o-ring as your shim between the regulator and ASA. Sand the o-ring down until you get the desired regulator position. I've done this with my Air America regulator back in the 90's and it worked great.
