Replacing all of the o-rings/gaskets on my 3 Perlick 425s; noticed the main body gasket (where the faucet connects to my draft tower) is starting to break down on all 3.

 

Saw that Kegworks has replacement sets for ~$6/faucet, so for $20 incl shipping), I have 3 complete sets of replacement o-rings/gaskets on the way. 

 

I could probably get by with just a new main body gasket for each faucet, but it seems they're only sold as part of a complete set, not individually.

 

Two of the Perlicks I got over 10 years ago, and the third I got 8 years ago, so I figure the time is probably right for a little maintenance/repair.

Let me know how this goes. Last time I tried rebuilding my perlicks a bunch of them leaked. I dont know if it was cheap generic parts that were the wrong size or what.

I have never rebuilt mine. When I cleaned them the other day it crossed my mind that I should look into replacing the soft parts.

Same. I run brass and really want two more. I search on ebay all the time with no luck.

10-4. This is my tap tower, so it would look kinda strange.
