Thanks. I have used aftermarket in line gauges, but others have said they may reduce flow. This would be better.
On another note, the bracket that supports the tanks is about 1/2" too high to mount 40lb tanks in my BH. I'm wanting to upgrade to 40's, but it means having to have the bracket re-welded about 1/2" to 3/4" lower. grrrrr.

they have 30# tanks too. I just linked to the 40# one since that is what the LM uses.

Are these tanks designed to work in a vertical position? The only application I have seen them used in is in a horizontal position such as forklifts. I tried to go to the link above but it just took me to the same picture that is in the thread.

Says you can buy them horzontal or vertical with a gauge ($70 more)
