Alright, I will post this here first.

My 68/45 is stuck on my ASA. I am very careful to make sure I do not cross thread it, nor do I crank it. Line up it, make sure its very snug. I disengaged the air to the marker, but for the life of me I can not undo the bottle by hand.

I took off the bottle cover so I can get a better grip, when I started to put some real effort into I noticed that it started to move. However, since I was paying real close atttention (3k Psi in tank) I noticed it didnt begin to unscrew from the asa, but rather the carbon fibre part started to twist in the metal piece that screws into the ASA. Obviously I stopped and realigned the tank back into its orginal position.

Now the question is, how do I proceed from here? I am thinking of draining the tank, and then taking a pipe wrench to it. (I will use padding as not to marr the metal part).

Anyone got better ideas?

I have a similar problem with my tank. Sometimes my bonnet starts to unscrew from my tank during degassing instead of coming out the the asa. What I do is I got two hew screw driver bits that fit the set screws in the bonnet. I get someone to hold my marker while it twist the tank out of my asa made easier by the extra leverage from the bits

Sorry, not up on the correct terms of HPA parts. Though 98suck seems to know what I am talking about and has a good idea. I think I will try that.

I will try to describe it better, If you take your HPA tank and look at you will see the top part with the threads that you put into your ASA. It should be a metal peice and the carbon fibre of the tank goes into it. When I am trying to unscrew it from the ASA the metal piece stays siezed to the ASA but the carbon fibre is moving in the metal piece.

Hope that helps.

Happened with me tank, as well. Just tighten those two screws and unscrew it from the ASA.
