Ok guys. i think it's a ball-lock keg, but it must be ancient because there is no pressure release valve on the lid.
Also, the rubber/plastic casing is a little cracked around all the connections. I assume it's mostly there for shock-absorption but I'm taking it as a no-brainer that I will need to replace all the o-rings.
Is this a ball-lock keg? Is it a problem that there isn't a pressure release valve? There is a kind of hook on the lid, but it's not a valve of any kind.
I also picked up this ancient CO2 tank with 'Property of Seven Up" stamped on it. The handle is a little bent up and there isn't a date or inspection sticker on it anywhere. Assuming this thing will still hold gas, which I'm told it will, is it going to be a pain to get it filled up? Will I have to replace the handle or pay to get it certified?
I was hoping to keg a batch next weekend, but I still need a regulator, the connections and all the tubing.

definetly race track ball lock keg try to swap the tank for a full one not fill it. no pressure relief does not matter just use the gas in side to relive pressure a screw driver works well i think any o rings for a keg should work i think the lids are the same size just different shape. keg connection try there

Do a search for McMaster Carr part numbers for the O-rings. The small ones (outside and inside posts) you get 100 for something like $5. The bigger ones cost a little more, but much cheaper than the ones you can get at your LHBS.
My bad, should have said to search HBT, since I sure can't tell my looking at them! Here's a post that lists the numbers. I didn't check those links to make sure they are current, but if they aren't I'm sure there's another post on here with good ones. Hope that's a little more helpful .
