That layout was also, not original. = What I seek is the optimum distance that a regulator be offset from its chest. Also, if I build new regulators, how do I scale them?   One specific problem that I now have deals with a four rank echo chest. = It appears that I cannot locate the regulator any closer than six feet away. Is that too far? The chest is on 3 1/2 inches of pressure.   In general, how does one figure regulator size? Additionally, how far can a regulator be removed from its chest? Of course this discussion should include the distance a trem is located away from the chest. And last, = what size windway between chest and regulator should be used, given the number of ranks   Curious is Missouri   Bob Taylor
