I picked up a complete spartanburg corny at a flea mkt today for $4. It looks like someone retrofitted it with pipe thread fittings nicely TIG'ed to the keg body and Parker 62/63 SS hydraulic QDs.
It also has some kind of strange pickup filter on the end of the 1/2" liquid dip tube that looks like a shower head. What the heck did I get and can it be converted to regular fittings? Looks like ~$75 worth of SS fittings on top of this thing.
