Forget the POS B tank, may as well carry map gas like mark said. Oxy acetylene is all youll need.
A good micron gauge.
The 3 cfm pump will work but I prefer the 6.
I gotta have my fan blade and blower puller.
Youll need ductwork tools. Crimper, hand brake, strap tensioner, etc.
Not familiar with your temperature equipment but think its a gun? I dont trust a gun for suction and temp line readings. I like my fieldpiece clampmeter which i have the bulb type temp probe and my pipe clamp probe.
Nitrogen tank and regulator.

I keep the Mapp & oxygen set from home depot in my pickup as a backup. Can't count how many times it has saved my butt at 2 AM.

It takes a little bit of getting used to going from Oxygen & Acetylene to anything else, especially where brazing is concerned. That said, I keep an Air/Acetylene B-tank, MAPP gas, and Oxygen Acetylene torch in the van.
The MAPP gas torch comes in handy when I have to go give somebody a hand unsweating a big pipe. I don't have to drag out all the regulators and hoses and other crap.Truth is still truth, even if no one believes it. A lie is still a lie, even if everyone believes it.
