So I was reading through all the advice and threads out there about kegging until I found those extremely helpful youtube videos! Holy Crap, a wealth of information!
1) The dreaded rootbeer keg has been re-rubbered and oxycleaned and rinsed
2) The other keg has all parts (including old o-rings) soaking in cleaner/sanitizer solution from my LHBS. I am going to try to salvage one set of O-rings so I have a spare.
Now, for the odd ball piece on all of this. Yesterday after getting the kegs torn apart, turned them upside down with lids off to dry. You guessed it one keg is taller than the other by approximately one inch. One is also approximately 1/4" wider in diameter. This is extremely important to me since I'm converting a danby 4.4 with limited space. I ordered ball locks, but am afraid I may've gotten a converted pin lock.
DOES ANYONE KNOW IF MY NOT YET PURCHASED DANBY (DAR440BL) WILL BE ABLE TO SQUEEZE THE TWO IN THERE? 8 1/4" and 8 1/2" in diameter!
