I would think that if you do the fix before it breaks, it will save a lot of trouble taking the regulator apart to fix it, and the extra support given by the bracket should help prevent the cable from pulling through.

Funny you should mention that.....that was one of my points in a recent pm to Archon!
Just have the beer (and the parts) ready for that inevitable day! I'm gonna do service calls now! My rates are 1 beer per mile travelling time plus labour!

Well Brian, you live very close to Tracy, SingsCountry1967, so next year you should high tail it out west with her and others for our WCBM07. :P

Plenty of that brown liquid here to satisfy your desires.

As long as you don't carry it on, you can take one 24 with you across the border.

I will resist flying at all if they don't allow carry on'* anymore. Damn Terrorists.
Mass genocide is what they deserve I didn't say that....
