Hey folks. Just got my hands on an old Beverage-Air BM23. By old, I mean brown cabinet, wood rails, R-12 data plate, and a 73Ixxxx serial number. Found her at a thrift store of all places, and snagged her for $42. She fires up, but doesn't cool (a note stating she needed a freon charge was scrawled on her top), has minimal rust inside, and all the hardware for a Sankey tap and single faucet. My goal is to get her recharged, repainted, and rigged out with a four faucet T-head, running both CO2 and a Nitrogen line. I know four Corny kegs will fit inside, and a 5# CO2 tank. My question is this; if I'm running three (or four) kegs at varying pressures, how big a tank do I need? Is a 5 pounder enough, or do I need a 10?
Another couple of questions. The air duct for the faucet tower is in bad shape. Looks like 1" corrugated hose, with a funny hanger on the end. How the frak do I remove and replace that duct, and where does the free end clip to? And how do I remove the drip-tray drain line?
I'll also try to post a pic or two of the rehab in process.
