Frank is right. Any canister you get from another maincase is liable to be drawn down in a similar way. I have found the best way to straighten them in the tractor is to remove the stud and the regulator on top. Take a piece of hardwood and make it about as round as you can (like a post) and nice and flat on the end. Don't make it fit too close to the bore of the canister due to the radius at the end. Have someone hold another piece of wood, or block of steel on the topside to counter the one from below and pound on it a bit to flatten the regulator mounting surface. The canister is actually quite soft.
If the canister moves at all it is liable to leak and you might as well remove it then and straighten it on the bench. It's not too bad of a job if you have the right stuff to drive it out with, and back in. Put some sealer on it if you have to remove and reinstall it. If you want to get real fancy you can make a press out of two steel discs the proper size. Drill and thread a hole in the center of one and a larger through hole in the other. Install one on each side and draw them together with a bolt.
Rich is right too. Better take a good look at the regulator to make sure it's not damaged. Also take a good look at the canister near the bottom of the case. If the tractor has sat for years with moisture/acidity present, the can may be thin, sometimes even riddled with holes.
Let us know how it goes.
