    Servicing Poseidon Regs

    That's no fun! With all the carb and engine rebuilds/tuning I do, I tend to be very careful about what gets the seal of approval before I move on. For me, a spec of anything is taken care of. I always find small pieces of lint/hair/foreign material in food I eat. The girlfriend has no idea how...

    Servicing Poseidon Regs

    I just rebuilt my 2960 without any of the special tools. First first stage rebuild. I used a long bamboo skewer to get the seat out and a 90 degree pick as the 'flat top' to seat it. Doesn't take much force so you won't mar the plastic. Just be smart and gentle

    Used Poseidon 1st + 2nd for $100? (for pony bottle)

    Also rebuilt the first stage. With my tools from working on cars/bikes etc, I really didn't need any special tools. The flat surface spanner wrench would have been nice, but I had some snap ring pliers I was able to use for the holes. Torqued specified parts to spec and lubed as indicated...
