Hello gang. Long time listener, first time caller. I have been slowly getting into vintage diving over the past few years and I can thank you for the great information I have acquired here. I have found and put back into diving condition a few double hose regs and purchased a Kraken on the first run.
Recently I found a cheap deal I couldn't pass up, a twin set of 1961 Sportsways 42's with 1/2" straight thread necks, manifold, and backpack. After some disassembly and cleaning, I found one of the tanks to be badly rusted internally. The last hydro date was 1970, quite a long time to be sitting around unused. Dropped the tanks off for hydro and got some bad (but not unexpected) news. The rusty tank was condemned due to pitting, the other tank hydro'd fine.
So now I have a dilemma. What do I do with one odd thread tank and no valve? I would love to find a mate for it and have an awesome little set of doubles to dive. Let me know what ideas you may have. Or even better, if you have another lone tank hiding somewhere you would want to find a good home for.
