That method of reassembly should get you in the ball park, with my reg which uses a 1mm pitch thread on the adjuster turning it 1/12 of a turn (5 mins on a clock face) would change the reg about 10 bar. It depends on the length of the spring stack and the thread pitch, the longer the stack or finer the thread pitch the less the change will be for any given degrees of adjustment. mine had a very short stack of only 6 belvilles.
