I went to turn on my propane vapor valve today and got a shower of propane from the valve stem, which apparently had a seal dry out during the winter. The tank says Manchester on the name plate. Anyone know where to get parts for one of these?

Thanks to some sage advice from Mwrench, the problem may have been resolved. He told me to slightly tighten the stem nut on the valve and it did tighten slightly. Now its wide open and not leaking. I will watch it for a few days.
