My credo
Crossed threads are tight threads.
The numbers are related to the threads for the regulator, have to look at your bottles to see what you need.

Acetylene regulators are not interchangeable with propane, cant remember why. Hoses are different too. even the torch tips are different for LP.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

One has left-handed threads so you can't mix them up. I think it's the oxygen.

It's the acetylene that's a head scratcher. I'm gonna figure out the threads and go from there.

It's just so that each gas takes the correct path through the torch and it's controls. Othe fuel gases are that way, too.
