If you are filling them on your own, it's not a huge deal, but wouldn't hurt to trade it in on a newer tank. The new tanks still have threads inside so the old regulators will hook up to them, but you still need a wrench to fasten it.
And honestly unless the hose seems cracked and in bad shape, I would just replace the oring on the regulator and keep using that second burner as is. Just do a soap check to be sure none of the connections and hose ends are leaking. They don't make stuff like that anymore unless you know someone who does it theirselves. You sure can't buy it.
