Plastic Post Insert for Older Keg Posts.  Most posts do not require these.  These are made for John Wood Ball Lock Kegs, but they will also work on other posts that require them, including many Racetrack Kegs.  In some cases this may not be the exact size, but this is the only one still made.  We have always been able to make them work when fixing our kegs.  You may have to file it down slightly.  These have been very difficult to find, but we seem to have a good source for now.  Many of the kegs that used these were made a very long time ago and we would recommend replacing this part and the poppet valve while the parts are still available.  Because many of them are still in service with this origional part we would expect the replacement to last just as long (20+ Years), but we can't guarantee that.

    Doesn't fit

    Unfortunately, it's a lot taller and slightly wider than the one I'm trying to replace. I may try to sand it down but it's a hard plastic and may be a challenge to uniformly reduce the diameter.

    wrong parts

    Posted by Paul on 10th Sep 2015

    Hello, I have a picture of what I need but I can't seem to find the right parts. I have an old Firestone keg with plastic washers tut are about 1/4 centimeter shorter and the small flair that comes out is smaller than the ones that were sent. I am frustrated because I can't seem to find the right parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me for a picture of the difference.
