Max-flow inline problem

So I just aired up my sons tank tonight and the the smart valve leaked, so I opened it more (thinking that it would blow out dirt that was stuck) and it let more air out when closing it. Anyway I checked ZDSP and found instructions.
That leaves me with 2 issues:
One- does anyone sell as full set of these o-rings?
Two- How the hell do I get the reg off the tank to get at the small set screw at the rear of the manifold.

Alternative solution is to send the tank to one of the shocker specialists for them rebuild it, the catch is I need this back in my hands on the 12th.

No I totally know what I got here now it is the inline max-flow rebuild instructions here and the questions that remain are:
1) Does someone rebuild these?

2)If not
a) How do I get the reg off the tank, I do not have a vice or a strap wrench.
b) Where can I get a set of o-rings to rebuild it?

1. I can if your not able to do it yourself. But you should be able to

2.
a) As long as someone didnt put a ton of loc-tite on the bottle threads you should be to remove the guages and clamp the reg in a vise between a couple of pieces of wood and remove it with a strap wrench\
b) I found rebuild kits for mine on ebay

Hope it helps

Went over to LVP they got it off for me, gave them a long list of o-rings, they are ordering them for me.
Thanks for the info though, I am going to try it.

Thumbs up

Get extras of the On/off O-rings (4/90)
I run several of the Inline Max-flos & that is the one I have the most problems with.

You can help the chopping on the on/off o-ring. Iirc, the chops or nibbles on that o-ring occur when you turn the reg on; the o-ring protrudes into the hole and the trailing edge of the hole in the plug grabs the o-ring and cuts a little arc out of it. If you put a tiny bevel on that edge and polish it smooth, it keeps it from grabbing the o-ring. Stay off the sealing surface of the plug though.
