Is it possible to just get a liquid out and gas in post and convert a pin lock to a ball lock? Got a pin lock keg from a friend and all my other kegs are ball lock. Thanks

Can I have your business card?

Why don't you take one of the posts off of one of your ball lock kegs and see if it'll fit this new pin lock keg?

I can't think of a reason it wouldn't work, unless the threads on the kegs are different, but I don't know for sure.

The only conversion kits I've seen are for FIRESTONE brand kegs. Williams has them
Icould really use a spell cheker here.

Would it not be easier/cheaper to have a faucet with pin lock fittings (or even install quick disconnects with variable fittings) than to convert pin locks to ball locks?
