Default Is this caused by a bad popet

In late 2012, I bought a race track style ball lock keg. I believe I need to replace the posts or popets. They are unusual (at least to me). The posts are labeled Series hk Hansen 2kg plug. The only info I can find on them is a product detail sheet from a Finland web site.

Do you agree that that is what is causing this jerky flow:

Try looking at the o-ring at the out dip tube... take the post off, pull the dip tube and see if the o-ring is gone or damaged (the one that goes on the dip tube itself).

I replaced the o rings. The video is with the new ones. It is the same as before. The old o rings did not look old.

This is with an already established kegarator and only happens with this keg?

have you checked your out dip tube for leaks? I'd guess up high near where it seats in the keg...

Just a guess.
