Performer regulator question
« on: February 23, 2013, 02:26:53 PM »
Hey a while back Jeff and Troy discussed a replacement regulator they got off of the shelf at Menards for their performer.  Do you guys remember which one it was?

Maybe....I just need to get a new one, I got a bad one from Marty.  I'm gonna put another gas assist in Meas Azul, so I need a new regulator

Yeah, that's why I replaced it on my SS. Good to know which one works though, I have another project in my head. Now all I need is time.

Greg, I had a similar problem where my gas assist was kinda popping and poofing intermittently.  I ran the problem by the message boards, and got some good advice to clean the burner assembly.  Specifically, a brass part before the gas gets delivered into the kettle.  It is a place where the gas mixes with the air, and the advice was to disassemble the parts (held together with a metal clip, if my memory serves), then use a wire brush to clean the face of the brass piece and to run a piece of the wire brush directly into the pinhole in the center of the brass piece to clean that out. 

I did all of that, and the thing now runs like a champ.

Thanks Mike! I think it is an air adjust valve. Maybe a piece of crud from the tank is blocking it a bit.
Still performs, but annoying.
