Default Ball Lock thread size

Hello.
I have an old Cornelius keg from the old Royal Crown bottling Co.
that used to be in Asheville, NC.
I just want to cap off the two threaded knobs in the top where the ball lock
assemblies go. Does anyone know the thread size. I can't find it
anywhere.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

I beleave it's a 3/8" flare connection. Check in DIY for the threads that talk about beer line cleaners, they use a ball lock connection for those setups.

It's not a flare and 3/8 didn't work.
Nothing at the local Home Depot would fit.
thanks I will check DIY in cleaner section.
It is an old keg, not the Firestone ball lock.
