Default Keg Post Question

I just got 4 kegs from midwest, and they all have different posts (all ball lock though). I wanted to have them all with the same post (either Corny "A" or "B" {I seem to have both}).

I would like to standardize on one if I can.. If not I need to order some more parts for spares.. If I am ordering spare parts is there really a difference between the "Gas" and "Liquid" post? They seem the exact same to the untrained eye..

Help please..
HB

best bet it to get a set of 12 point deep sockets and forget about it. I think some are changeable, and others are not.

OK.

Any difference between GAS or LIQUID posts? They should be the same right?

No, they are quite different. A Gas QD will not fit on a liquid post and vice versa.

That's not to say you couldn't just swap all of your gas posts with liquid posts and just have one type - but you certainly risk connecting the wrong line to the wrong post.

Works on both sizes!

OK.. So to force carb via the liquid side I now assume I need to change the QD fittings?

Gas posts have a notch in the securing nut - Liquid posts are sans the notch.
