How much would a used 68/45 gurilla tank, with just 2yrs left on hydro go for?

It is very difficult to impossible to remove the gauge stem if broken off in the reg. You can send it in to me at GA Illinois and I can attempt to remove and replace if possible.

I have fairly new GA tank and the new myth reg and at practice yesterday the tank started leaking from the hole right behind the gauge. What do I need to do to fix it.

The brass thread ring is held on and secured by the flange.(top piece w/3/16 hex insert around the poppit pin). Repeated screwing in and removing the bottle from the asa can loosen the flange slightly. Simply retighten the flange securely using the 3/16 allen wrench supplied with the G2 and that will remove the "free play".

Sorry but I can't estimate resale values. Go to the b/s/t thread and inquire or estimate.

If your tank is exibiting a crack send it in and GA will gladly replace it under warranty. The resin finish coat on some of the bottles is cracking and has been addressed with the manufacturer. This is a cosmetic defect and does not affect the structural integrity of the bottle.

Venting through the hole indicates that the hp o-ring (small black ring on piston) has been compromised, either through a dirty fill or a defect in the ring. Venting is the internal safety alerting you of a potential "spike" eventually. Suggested action is to replace the o-ring , available from GA , or in the case of contaminents causing abrasion on the surfaces replacing the piston and retainer as a set. You can send it to us at GA Illinois for warranty service if you are unsure.

Return the tank to GA Illinois for warranty replacement. Some of the tanks were cured improperly from the manufacturer causing the sealing coat to crack. This has been addressed with the manufacturer. The integrity of the tank is not compromised but it is very disturbing see something like this happen in appearance. We will gladly replace it for you.

Yes hello, my new 48x4500 is glowing and hovering above my table.... seems to be music coming out of it...


I guess there's nothing wrong here as my 70x4500 already cured world hunger and almost provided world peace (too bad I shot everybody at the peace conference)

The lp kit is currently available from GA. Contact GA tech center Illinois. The kit just recently was released an some dealers have not received them.

The brass thread collar is secured by the tightness of the top flange. Retighten the flange securely and it will secure the collar. Check post #345 for explanation. Use the 3/16 allen wrench supplied with G2 regs to retorque the flange and you should be good to go.
