Re: Need help getting propane fitting off
Hmm.. that looks like a standard NPT to flare fitting adaptor.. unlikely it's reverse thread. Do you have a pipe wrench small enough to support the aluminum/potmetal fitting while you try to loosen the brass part? Heating things up with a small propane/butane torch might work wonders if you can safely do that. Concentrate on the brass part.
Drag a dental pick around the exposed part of the threads to see if you can determine what direction will turn it off...
