Default Poppet Valves on Corny Keg - Cracked washers

I got some corny kegs from homebrewing.org. I took off the poppet valves to clean them. I believe most of the nylon washers in there are broken. The kegs arrived sealed, but are the broken washers going to cause leaks? I didn't see where I could procure new ones.

Anyone know?

Many online homebrew shops sell them.

Looks like more beer doesn't have them and chicompany is sold out of them

I just picked up some used cornies from Craig's List and replaced all the gaskets. All the gaskets for two kegs cost like $5 I think. It only took about 5 minutes to disassemble the kegs, install the new gaskets, and then reassemble everything.

Contact homebrewing.org, if they can't send you some they should replace the kegs with ones that don't have that issue.

I thought you meant the plasticy part on the poppet itself, and I was implying you should replace the whole thing. I see what you are talking about now. I would agree with the above post.
