Bobby M,
I just acquired a Coors keg and I am going to convert it. Will your sight glass work on this considering the big bulge in the middle. Does the sight come out far enough?

The 4" probe would then only put the last 1/2" inside the vessel and it would be affected by latent heat from the burner. A 6" probe would solve this problem but it would take a very long time to sell these at the quantity I have to buy.

Lastly, it would put the sight tubing and thermometer out away from the vessel by at least an extra inch, maybe more subjecting it to more potential damage.

I was planning on purchasing the welded version of the combo kit but came across this post. Do you still feel the welded version has limitations or have you addressed these?

Just to clarify, I offer both weldless and weld-in (or thread in if you already have couplings welded in). If you want a thread-in kit that puts the thermo and sightglass on the same port, you'll need the upsized version with model number LTS240 with the 3" dial thermometer. You just can't get the compact kit, model WLST240 with the 2" thermo, in thread-in.
