Call Perlick. They are pretty good at standing behind their products and making sure you can get parts. I have 4 of their new SS taps. They all leaked. There was a design issue and they changed some of the parts as a result. They sent me out new rebuild kits for mine.

Some info in this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/perlick-o-rings-222382/
I think that should cover #5 and #8 below. The other stuff you may not need to replace.

The plastic/rubber parts include two different sizes of o-rings, two different sizes of rubber washers, and a pair of bearing cups. I'm not sure of the sizes and Foxx Equipment catalog doesn't list the sizes. If it helps, here are Foxx's part numbers and a diagram.

3 12G09-131 Washer (rubber)
4 12G09-185 Bearing Cup
5 12G09-186 O-ring
7 12B03-173 Washer, faucet
8 15C07-104 O-ring, plunger

Just out of interest - and for the record in case someone lands on this thread in the future - what did the "rebuild kits" consist of?

Cheers!

Interestingly the "official" kits don't include o-rings.

I just noticed that Perlick sells all the parts themselves, including the kits, for a reasonable price.

http://www.perlick.com/store/webcata...ctno=1&grpno=8

Basically the "kits" include all the parts marked "9 Kit" in the picture I posted above.


Kegworks sells a kit of all the plastic/rubber parts for $5 http://www.kegworks.com/perlick-425-...t-1360-p175514
