What? I think you're a bit confused.

To get the gas into the meter from the propane bottle, you need an adapter that can be found on BCARMS I think, called a propane adapater or something, you can't buy 'em seperate only with torch heads.

To get the gas from the meter into the chamber you just need your meter setup, you fill the meter then open the ball valve to let the gas from the meter in the chamber.

You don't need a schrader for a propane meter unless you're building a hybrid.

no, see i have a meter like this
http://www.advancedspuds.com/propane.htm

all i need to do is install a schrader valve into my combustion chamber, then press the air chuck from my propane meter system onto it which will release the gas from the meter into the chamber.

could someone please tell me which schrader valve I should buy?
