Default Replacing 2.5" Draft Tower with a 3"

Is it possible to replace my Single Tap 2.5" Draft Tower with a 2 Tap 3" Draft Tower?

Got a kegerator recently and the tower is a 2.5" and the flange is 3.5"

Could I get the 3" Tower with a 4.5" Flange and just drill new mounting holes? The Towers diameter will be about a 1/2" bigger than the hole in the top of the kegerator but that shouldn't be a problem right??

I did that with my Kenmore keggerator. It was easy for me because the top is actually wood, so there was no fear of hitting any refrigerant lines while drilling the new mounting holes.

Ya the top of mine is wood also. Well if it worked for you I hope it'll work for me, so I think I'll go for it. Thanks

Should work. Measure twice, drill once.
