I run the OG20 at about 14, but I can tell you that I cannot rage the Scorpion with that. It's a balance. Hopefully you will find something what works for you.

My regulators were over 20 years old when I got them in the early '90s. Since then my propane regulator has been sitting outside in sun, wind and rain. I only take it off when a hurricane is coming.

I'd go with the glue also, but for those who like to repair, trying heat the piece to 1050 for an hour, then bringing it out into the flame. Works much better than the lower temps for me.
