A year-and-a-half ago I replaced a pulsing acetylene regulator with a medium duty Victor. I use this rig irregularly, and was truly bummed yesterday to find a new case of pulsing. This regulator was put on the tank when new, and hasn't been removed. I took it off yesterday and gave a cleaning blast on the tank, but didn't see any debris come out. The tank has 275 psi, so supply isn't a factor. Questions abound:
-- Are there quick-fixes to get this regulator going again?
-- If No to the above, is this regulator worth repairing? Or simply replace it, again? (If replace, please give advice on reliable unit.)
-- Could I have a contaminated tank? What else could be causing this? Many thanks in advance.
