Default 3 gal Ball lock dip tubes?

I have borrowed some 3 gallon ball locks and thought one only needed a poppet and a pressure valve but have come to realize that both are missing the liquid diptubes. So the question is, are there 3 gal ball lock diptubes or do I need to buy 5 gal dip tubes and just cut them?

I don't know of any 3 gallon dip tubes commercially available, but I could certainly be wrong. Chi-Company has regular ones. They could be cut:

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

I think you might have to get 5 gal keg tubes and cut them down. Of course you could just mount the keg upside down to dispense

Why are you rebuilding borrowed kegs? Why not just get the missing parts from the person you borrowed them from?

Well their not entirely borrowed. They're kegs from work and it sounded like if I can make them work they're mine.
