Default Leaking gas, Nitro keg system

I tried to use my new nitro keg system I bought from Midwest tonight but ran into a problem. My gas was leaking upstream from the regulator. Am I missing a washer between the tank and the regulator? One was not included in the system and I tried screwing the regulator directly to the tank threads, but gas continued to leak through the threads.

Please help.

Nitro regs should have an o-ring on the end of the regulartor that goes into the tank. Unlike CO2 regs which use a "washer" to seal it.

See this pic to get the idea: http://www.micromatic.com/draft-keg-beer/gas-equipment-pid-842N.html
