    quote: What I have to do is: turn the bottle off, unhook the hose from the low pressure side of the regulator to "bleed it", reconnect the hose, open the bottle slowly,

    The tank has a "valve" in it that detects sudden flow and closes the outlet since it assumes something has broken. It stays closed until you stop the flow and allow it to "drop back" into its open position.

    Was the vent hole on the old regulator open ?

    Did you try the bang method to UN-stick the regulator ?

    Side burners are handy, but not really necessary.

    Nice that you have it working.
    Theory only works perfect in a vacuum.
