I hate that life has become too busy for me to homebrew and I've been spending too much on bottles lately.
I will measure when I get home at 3:45, but this page should be accurate

With the coupler you already have you need the standard 5-6 inches clearance above the keg, so 28-29 inches. Should work, will be tight, but should work.

It will be tight but if your first posts 28-1/4" is correct you can just get by. This is with some pinching of the inside of the line so there will be turbulance and a possible small amount of added foaming. If you can find the 90 degree elbow fitting Juan posted or a low profile american sankey coupler you will be set with room to spare. Hope this helps.
