Default Milwaukee solenoid and JBJ regulator

I blew the Milwaukee regulator that I have and I was offered a JBJ model from a friend. I have the solenoid and bubble counter as well, so can I just unscrew that from the regulator and will the threading be the same to use on the JBJ?

I've never worked with either regulator, but I have read that Milwaukee uses a type of Loctite product on their fittings that makes it had to disassemble. I don't know about the JBJ.

I think that both use 1/8" NPT threads, but I don't know which parts are male threads and which parts are female threads. If you can get it apart and you need adapters, they are easy to find.

They should both have 1/8th ports but I must tell you that it will take some muscle to get that solenoid off as I had to put mine in a vise to get the regulator apart.
