Also be careful when replacing the oring. Since it can't freely slide around when mounted, if you don't set the oring very evenly, it could end up stretched in some spots and squeezed in others. So don't just push it back in by sliding your finger along the oring groove with constant pressure, that'll stretch it. Lay it over the grove and just push in a little bit at a time. Dunno if that makes sense but its not tough to figure out.

Get a set of brass O-ring picks. They are inexpensive and will last a life time. Being brass they won t damage your O-ring grooves. Useful for your regulators too.
These look great. Have you had any problem with "stabbing" your o-ring or otherwise taking a chunk out of it when using them? (I, too, have had difficulty removing my housing body o-ring and am always looking for an easier way.)
