I've had a Mr. Gasket and a couple others, they all went in the garbage can. IMHO the Holley us the only one worth buying. Mr. Gasket regulator is ESPECIALLY trashy!

They usually have two modes of failure,
No regulation and carb overflows
Cut's off fuel.

I've also tried those before Mr. Gasket sold them and they would fail quickly. by far a Holley design is great.

There is also a Third mode: Regulator commits total suicide and sprays the engine area with gas (not good)!! Here's the one I've been using for about two years now. It allows good precise adjustments and maintains them. It's also a dual output so you can put a montoring gauge on the second.

I tried a dial type Puralator regulator. It stopped gas flow completely...piece of junk.
