WARNING: Cylinder valves should only be replaced by individuals that have been properly trained to repair DOT cylinders. All pressure MUST be removed from the cylinder before the old valve is removed. When selecting the proper replacement valve you must choose a valve that has a dip tube (DT) that matches (or is longer) the DT number stamped on the cylinder head or neck ring. NEVER install a valve that has a dip tube shorter than the DT number stamped on the cylinder head or neck ring.
