Checked mine, It is 7/8 inch. You shouldn't need flare wrench. Standard wrench or adjustable wrench. Your is damaged by looks in photo. May need small pipe wrench, then replace.

as stated above it's a left hand thread at the tank. In your picture you should be pulling up on the wrench to loosen.

Definitely left-handed threads.

Well, that was a little aggravating not having the right tools, but it's done.

Learned that the propane system uses lefthand threads on one end and right hand threads on the other.

The correct size wrench for LP connections is a good set of channel locks.

That no matter what you buy on Amazon, you'll still need to go to the hardware store at least twice, once to buy everything you think you need, and second, to take back what you really didn't need.

And usually I never throw away parts till way after the job is finished, but this time I did. I could have used a fitting, that I thought I already had.

Now on to testing the stove, fridge, water heater and furnace.

The water pump will be in a few days, that will be most of those parts.

Thought I should post a pic of final install. The fitting between the regulator and 4-port could be a little shorter. And the fitting between the 4-port and valve needs to be a little longer (not enough room for a flare wrench, duh)

Now I need to start testing the appliances.

Looks close!
Regulator vent should be facing down. I cannot see it in photo. Regulators come in horizontal or vertical vent locations.
The Extends-a flow would have better access if rotated to make it easier to make connections.
I am being picky!
Was it easier to get off knowing it was left-handed thread?

Thanks, I will take a look for that vent. And I did think about rotating the top port more toward the opening, but just wanted it done and over with. It still blows my mind that it had lefthand threads. I don't mind any of y'all being picky, I'm learning a lot about this thing


Thanks to all!
