I just got 4 kegs from midwest, and they all have different posts (all ball lock though). I wanted to have them all with the same post (either Corny "A" or "B" {I seem to have both}).

I would like to standardize on one if I can.. If not I need to order some more parts for spares.. If I am ordering spare parts is there really a difference between the "Gas" and "Liquid" post? They seem the exact same to the untrained eye..

Help please..
HB

best bet it to get a set of 12 point deep sockets and forget about it. I think some are changeable, and others are not.

OK.

Any difference between GAS or LIQUID posts? They should be the same right?

No, they are quite different. A Gas QD will not fit on a liquid post and vice versa.

That's not to say you couldn't just swap all of your gas posts with liquid posts and just have one type - but you certainly risk connecting the wrong line to the wrong post.

This is the cheapest and best tool for post removal....

Works on both sizes!

OK.. So to force carb via the liquid side I now assume I need to change the QD fittings?

Gas posts have a notch in the securing nut - Liquid posts are sans the notch.
