PIN LOCK POST O-RING SOLVED!!!
Okay, sorry for the yelling above, but I wanted to get your attention. After I switched my gas lines to reinforced lines and beer lines to 3/16Ē BevSeal (no more beer tasting like water from a garden hose), I developed frequent gas leaks and occasional beer leaks. The reinforced gas lines and BevSeal are much stiffer than the beer/gas lines most use, which caused the fitting to torque and twist. After losing several tanks of CO2, reading this entire post several times and many other posts, I decided to take a hit for the team. Here is what tried:
No. 1. -112 BUNA
No. 2. -112 Silicone
No. 3. 10mm (ID) X 16mm (OD) X 3mm (Diameter) Silicone
No. 4. 12mm (ID) X 17mm (OD) X 2.5mm (Diameter) Silicone
No. 5. 12mm (ID) X 18mm (OD) X 3mm (Diameter) Silicone
No. 6. 10mm (ID) X 17mm (OD) X 3.5mm (Diameter) Silicone
I decided to go with 10mm (ID) X 16mm (OD) X 3mm (Diameter) Silicone for the beer post and 12mm (ID) X 18mm (OD) X 3mm (Diameter) Silicone for the gas post. The inside diameter of Nos. 1 & 2 were too big. The 2.5mm diameter of No. 4 was too small for the groove, and I did not get a snug connection. The 3.5mm diameter of No. 6 was just too thick to fit in the groove.
No. 3 works well on the beer post; it takes a little stretching, but is nice and snug. No. 5 on the gas post is downright tight and takes a little wiggling to get it off. It may be too tight for some. I did not try 11mm (ID) X 17mm (OD) X 3mm (Diameter) Silicone because I could not find them in small quantities, but it is right between the two and may be just right. I also donít know how well BUNA would work. It seems less stretchy to me and might make No. 3 too hard to get on the post and No. 5 too hard to get the connector on post. Iíll leave it someone else to try BUNA and 11mm (ID) X 17mm (OD) X 3mm (Diameter) Silicone.
I ordered small quantities on Amazon from here:
(10 pcs. for $3.49 - 10mm (ID) X 16mm (OD) X 3mm (Diameter) Silicone)
(10 pcs. for $3.47 - 12mm (ID) X 18mm (OD) X 3mm (Diameter) Silicone)
Larger quantities (and the 11x17x3 in silicone) can be purchased at http://www.oringsandmore.com/
I welcome others to carry the torch from here and post their results. Iíve also attached a few photos.
No. 5 is on the left, a BUNA -111 (agreed ball lock size) in the middle, and No 3 on the right.
