In Reply to: NOAA found the problem a year and a half ago, and NOW we have a recall? posted by Chuck Tribolet on October 03, 2006 at 13:48:08:

I don't see this as being a big issue unless your regs were serviced by a gorilla that didn't use a torque wrench. The problem only happens if the service tech tightens the heck out of the yoke or DIN retainer. I bet there are lots of regulators that could be simlarly damaged by careless service. I've got 5 MK20s. As I rotate them in for annual service I'll have them upgraded at but since I trust my service tech I'm not worried about failure.
