Nice. I wish I could find a deal like that to swap a 5lb for a 20.

aha! twas a leaky gas release valve on the lid (poppet i guess). even after i tightened it, it was slow. I did a transfer into an extra keg. Are these just swap-out parts easy to fix?

i also noticed the poppets on the gas in and liquid out were funky. But when i pushed it in with my finger they straightened out

Sometimes those things just get a bit gunked up over time. You can remove them inspect and clean as necessary. Sometimes the springs just wears out.

Midwest Supplies sells them for $13. I'm sure other place do as well. Here's a link for MW.

You can get them for $5 at kegconnection. If you order by phone you can have them ship it in a small manila envelope which is cheaper than standard shipping. For small parts, shipping costs more than the part sometimes.

This is great info BBL. I've been nursing a few along for awhile now not wanting to pay $13 a piece for them. Thanks!
