I think you should dive it both ways to get the feel of the original before deciding on how you want to use the reg. You will have a reminder of what it was like diving the old regs, and it's easy to make the changeover.ScubaLawyer wrote: ↑Fri Feb 09, 2018 12:13 amBill, sorta sounds like the only time I'd need the restrictor installed is if I wasn't using a submersible pressure guage AND I wasn't using a j-valve for my reserve? If that's the case then i see no reason to install the restrictor (and probably the reason someone took it out to begin with). Thoughts?
I may charge for my time but no one seems to ever getting around to paying my bill so I basically work my butt off for free.
See Herman's advice for additional information about drilling out the restrictor. I agree, but would only do that if I had an extra original on hand to make a truer restoration of the HW if desired.
About my comment on charging for time... That's what we all do in our respective professions. I respect your education, knowledge and your profession... it's just fun to pick on lawyers for some reason.
