Got a tank regulator leaking out the ball seal 

What size and material is it?

Ninja reg? I don't know that it is a certain "size" like O-rings are sized. I think it is a delrin disc that they make.

The pin regulators used (iirc) a -007 o-ring.

I tried a #6 D90 oring and a #6 nylon washer separately. Both seemed to fit. The oring was forced out of the hole in 24 hrs and the washer did not seal (hole wasn’t big enough).

I emailed PA after finding nothing on their site. Said they would contact me in 2 days - gees!

Went ahead and ordered a Ninja V2 Ball Seal kit which has a green plastic style washer. Couldn’t find the Seal by itself.

Maybe I can match it up to a Seal at Ace Hardware when it comes.

I had one and went back to the old style bonnet. Seems the "ball seal" doesn't like higher pressures (over 850psi).

Shame to have to pay $10 for a seal, spring and ball bearing.

I have a “no name” 4500 Reg black top gold bottom set at 1350 output pressure.

What parts did you replace to convert it?

Given similar Reg styles are Reg bonnets standard size across most/all manufacturers?
