House built late 80's, old pressure regulator (redundant?) from original range/oven sticks out so I can't put new range/oven flush to wall. Since new range/oven has its own pressure regulator, can I just remove this old one? I wondering if it's from the original range/oven, now redundant since my new range/oven has its own pressure regulator. Two guys at True Value think I can remove it, connect stove without it. Pictures of kitchen and basement feed attached. Help?

Yep, rip it out...unscrew it nicely and add it to your Steampunk Lamp Project. If it were to remain, it may actually be at a different regulation and affect the performance of the new range. Less is more.
