Umm well if its just a little off then simple unscrew it alittle so that it gets the angle you want.... Thats why there is two orings =)

I don't advise it but most people use a bit of teflon tape so that it tightens up where you want it to. If it goes past where you need it, add some tape. If it doesn't quite make it, lose some tape. Small tears of teflon tape can make its way into the marker and cause restriction, note that if you plan on using it.

you can use tank orings... just stick them in your VA until you get it where you want.

what do u mean?

black rubber (aka buna) O rings that go on the valve of your tank...lay an extra one inside the VA before adding the reg. Lay your marker upside down and add the ring...screw in the reg. The O-ring will act as a spacer
