Default For Sale - Anyone want to convert pin locks to ball locks?

Sorry this is a double post. (Not very fond of my computer)

------------->
I got a good deal on some ball-lock kegs that were converted from pin-locks. I already run a pin-lock system and would like to convert them back to pin-locks.

Just wondering if anyone would like to trade keg posts. Basically you would get a new in and out post for each set. I have 4 sets. Since these are essentially new i would be looking for similar condition pin-lock posts (leak free poppets and good o-rings).

These are made for pin-lock kegs so i'm not sure if they would fit on ball-locks.

Thanks



Reason: double post

I'm interested. I have 3 pin-lock kegs that I have yet to use because I tend to use the ball lock ones. I've pressure tested them so I know the poppets are good. I could hook up some qd's and check the o-rings to make sure they're good too.

Since I don't know too much about pin lock kegs, are all of the posts interchangeable? I know posts for ball locks aren't (Corny, Firestone, etc.). My pin lock kegs are all old Coke ones.

Default doesn't fit on Cornelious pin lock?

A note of caution.

If these are like the "CornyKeg Pin/Ball Lock Conversion Kit"
http://www.cornykeg.com/catalog.asp?prodid=682504
then it seems they might not work for Cornelius brand pin lock kegs.

I'd be happy to be wrong tho since I have 2 Cornelius brand pin lock kegs that I'd like to convert to ball lock. (So please let me know if there's a solution for me other than trade.)

I posted in your other thread, the guy above has 3 sets and I have one set. So let me know if you want to trade. Thanks.

Sounds good drocu and JRems. i was thinking i would send them out in one of those small flat rate boxes or a padded envelope depending on what is cheaper.
If you guys want to sent me your address in a PM i can reply with mine. I actually have beer in two of the kegs so i will have to do some transferring.
I also have one set of ball lock QDs. one has a flared fitting and one is barbed. i'd potentially be looking for a set of flared fitting QDs if someone wanted to trade those as well.

Thanks

Yes rwcbrew these are the same as that kit. They work on the firestones and hoovers.

Let me check out my kegs later tonight. I haven't had an opportunity to do so.

And yeah, if this works out well, I do have a pair of flared pin lock QD's that I wouldn't need.

Edit: Never mind, my pin lock kegs are Cornelius brand so these adapters won't work. Sorry that I can't help you out.

All my pin locks are idle, so if anything falls through let me know via PM.
I do have a extra set of flared/barbed QD's that you welcome to trade if this happens.

Thx.
