Default regulator

I have read in old posts that a high and low pressure regulator are used on a Reid 15. What is the purpose of the high pressure one? Also, I picked up a Ford T coil that looks good except for the rust on the top. Any suggestions on how to de rust these tiny parts? Thanks, Dan

Default Re: regulator

Some use a High pressure regulator instead of a needle valve for the hot tube burner.

The coil? I taped up the wood and sand blasted carefully until I could get the nuts off, then blasted each part. I have 3 of them that have all brass parts.
