All twelve point posts were gas. we have new and used replacement parts on hand. We also have piles of poppets and reconditioned kegs. I am registered and on the Vendors List as Tom's Brew Shop. Ryan just picked up our donation for the silent auction this month.
Do they make a too that you can use to get the poppet into the post?

Does it look very worn or scratched?
I bought a bunch of ball lock kegs recently and I'm amazed at the variety. Some have 12 point on both sides, some have 6 point on both sides, some are randomly mix and match.

No special tool that we know of, but one way would be to use the short gas side dip tube to push the poppets in. this allows the center pin to move while being able to push the three legs further up into the post. i have used an awl, or metal pick to push the base of the legs in also.
