I ended up using a valve from a normal 98 custom which had the threads for the vertical adapter.  I had to sand out a ridge in the power tube and also had to file out some parts of the receiver halves to fit it in.

I got a different rva that has a hole for the ACS bolt.

Works flawlessly.

Is your new marker a Platinum Series?  If so then the vertical adapter from a 98 Custom will not interchange with it and you will need to buy a Platinum Series Vertical Adapter Kit.  

If they are both non-Platinum 98 markers then the vertical adapter will & regulator should swap over without a problem.  

Platinum Series have a split receiver & the gas-line holds the valve in place, which eliminates the two valve retaining bolts.  For your reference here's a video on how to take a part a Platinum Series http://youtu.be/97170WoXyQs 

As for you RVA -   If it's not drilled to accept the A.C.T. springs then it won't work.

Don't quote me on this, but I don't think the Pro and Platinum series will accept the old "Custom" parts. I know your RVA won't work with the ACT since the ACT needs the extra holes for the extra spring. Not 100% sure on the vertical adapter, but looking at pictures of the valve, it seems unlikely.

I recently obtained a 98 custom pro w/ act.  I want to transfer my Palmers/Vertical adapter and rva to it from my regular 98 custom.

I am wondering how can I use the vertical adapter with the custom pro.  there are no screw threads in the valve body to screw it into.  I assumed I could transfer over my valve from my other gun but there are new screw holes to secure it to the side of the marker.

Maybe I am missing something?

Also will the rear velocity adapter work? It doesnt have the same surface as the custom pros rear piece but it does fit.
