Victor and smith are two of the leading manufacturers of welding gages and regulators. Do a google search. Also try northern tools and or harbor freight. It is hard to umagine that a welding shop could not help you, around here you can buy them through auto parts stores.

If your talking about the fill/discharge valve I do notthink they are serviceable;


The control valve for welding iscalled a regulator.


I recently purchased a pair of Harris regulators (oxy & acetylene)when Ireplaced my leaking oxy unit. Look here:

The regulators can be repaired, new seals diaphrams etc. I will sell the used oxy & gas regulators for cheap if your interested. As stated the oxy regulator needs a new diaphram.

You might want to check the Hydro date on that bottle. If a tank fails inspection they take the valve and rebuild it for use on another bottle.


You can check on eBay for welding equipment... but. I bet you can buy or lease a full bottle for less than you'd spend on a new valve. Just one other thing. They don't fill them anymore, just exchange for a full one. So, you'd likely never see your shiny new valve again.

Yea Man I bought some tanks and regulators from a guy about 70 miles from here but the oxygen tank had no valve in iti found a brass valve on line for about $100.00 but i can buya small tank with valve for much less on ebay so that's what i am going to do.


And Blade i got a 65 tooth rear sprocket for $10.00 (on ebay) as well as a 128 tooth belt i will be putting them on soon then all i will need is a fairing and i will be ready for the long hall. I already have the Road Star hard bags, im enjoying the **** out of them.
