Default Good regulator that has replacement parts?

My beverage factory regulator just craped out ( psi creeping up), can't find actual brand name on the unit to try to re-order parts. What is a good regulator brand that is easy to find parts for when it needs to be rebuilt?

Taprite and micromatic both make quality regs and sell replacement parts. If you post pics someone might be able to point you to a rebuild kit for the one you have. It might also just have some crud in it causing the creep, and taking it apart and giving it a good cleaning might fix it.

Earlier when I took the regulator apart I saw the diaphram, a large spring, and a plastic ring that goes around the outside of the diaphram. Under the diaphram there is a bolt head with a small pin in the center of it, I tried to take the bolt head off but could not. Should that bolt and pin come out also? Thanks

That's probably the seat capsule, and it should come out, but I'm not sure how. It's been a while since I took a reg apart, but I think it may have been left hand threaded on mine. That doesn't mean it is on yours though. Sorry I'm not more help.

thanks for the ideas, I called beverage factory and they informed me that the reg is their brand, called kegco, and that they do not sell replacement parts for them. I guess you get what you pay for!! Thanks again.

The bolt thing typically is where the magic happens. It has the high-pressure seat in it and you can't disassemble it. At least that's how my Norgren worked. Emphasis on worked.
