I actually got lucky that I found it. I unhooked the tank and set it on the ground. I applied so much soapy water to the valve stem it flowed across the top of the tank and it was then that I noticed a very small pin hole in the top of the tank approximately 1/2" out from the weld where the valve is threaded into the tank.
