I really dont know how to title this but it's about tank regs.

So I have a 68/45k ninja shp that I use to use for my mag but no longer need the super high pressure. I also have a standard output ninja pro reg on a 48/45k. Could I, instead of swapping the entire reg, just swap out the internals including the shims and all and effectively be the same as swapping the entire thing out? I ask because I tried unscrewing the shp reg from the 68/45k and it isnt going all the well.

Thanks for any help

Subscribing because I'm curious as well

O don't know what they changed between the adjustable regs and shp regs.

What is your output pressure?

Best bet is to trade for a normal reg for someone who wants the SHP

But you should contact ninja directly with this inquiry.

With no shims, the SHPs used to run around 900 psi. Are you out of automags? Classics and ULTs behave well on 900.

I have to admit I haven't replaced my end-of-life bottle on my SHP for a couple of years now.

I'm not out of automags. I just have a pnue mag that behaves fine on 750 psi, which is what the "standard" out put gives. So.. I am sure you all are curious, atleast trbo is, I have already switched the guts but all I have to use to fill the tanks is a manual pump for PCP guns, which is slow going at best. I am working on filling the tank. So far seems good. But I am only at 600 psi and not sure what the final out out of the tank is till I get further. This is tiring work and I wish I could have figured this out when I was in my 20's.

Edit: to spider!, the main reason I am curious of this is my shp reg seems to not behave properly and without shims and with shims gives out 1500 psi, which is not at all what it is supposed to do. I have contacted ninja in the past about this but they never responded.

I'm not sure if it is taboo to suggest this, but I would post in this thread on PBNation:

I've always had an answer from a Ninja Tech within a day or two of posting there. If your reg is putting out 1500 PSI regardless of shimming, it probably needs a new piston (bad ball seat).

Well yeah I had figured that but I'm not too worried about it now because I really dont need even 1100 psi or whatever the shp givess. But i could really use the 68ci capacity over my 45ci tank and both tanks are pro v2 ninja regs just the 68ci one is shp and the 45ci one is standard output, so I was just curious if I could swap the guts of the reg from one to the other instead of trying to swap the entire reg over as its alot easier to just swap the guts out.

Try calling them on the phone. I did this the week before last, a human answered the phone and immediately answered my question.
