Thanks for the info. I took the valve out and retaped the entire thread body then put it in and cranked it down. It works perfect. It was strange because after I got the tank back from Hydro, less of the valve (less threads) were showing and the valve was closer to seating. The dive shop rechecked the threads and they were fine. It's all done now. I drove to Victorville in the desert for the two 72's, but it was well worth it. Thanks again, Brian Xavier, Visalia CA
