When I want to separate the tank from the upper half I put a piece of rubber around the upper right where it joins the tanks an place it in the vice upside down. Then spin the tank off. Every once in awhile I have to but a rubber strap clamp (like you use to spin off an oil filter) and help break it loose. Make sure the rubber strap is on the very bottonm of the tank or you will dent it when pressure is applied.

I use woodbutcher's method though usually with hunks of wood instead of rubber. Just be careful to not put side ways pressure on the tank or you can easily put a little bend in the area of the bung and later have to bend it back straight. Not to hard to do but a tiny bit of a pain.

I clamp the valve works in the vise. No tight just to hold it as I hand turn the font. Has worked on all of mine. Take what you think is needed off of the valve assemble to keep from damage. I can't remember should be taken off, it has been a while since I worked on double mantle of that era.
