@Chandy You can get replacement casters at Home Depot. Looks like a exact match for $5-$6 bucks a set. It's just a couple bolt swap to move the badge plate to the other side. Go to a propane distributer they sometimes have used 5# tanks for less than $20, I've bought a couple. Is your frame good and tight? You might want to make sure your bottom rails are tight. If not you may want to replace the star nuts. She should turn out Great!

Congrats! Your N code SSP looks much better shape than Mine when I got it.  You should have no problem fitting 5 or 20lb tanks with what you already have. I converted mine to a 1lb tank with just a simple swap to a gen 2 or 3 regulator hose. It all depends on what you want to do with it.

If you want a brand new original quick connect tank they apparently have them here http://www.propanetankstore.com/5-lb-1-2-gallon-manchester-propane-tank-with-sturgis-quick-connect/

Two years ago I purchased two with shipping for about the price they want for one.  I had to order them through Ace Hardware though after talking with Manchester directly.  Might be worth checking out.  The new style 5lb tanks do not fit exactly in the SS performer but they will work.

my unit does not have the QD function but just a POL at the end of the regulator. Hoping to buy a Manchester 5lb with the flat rail to fit my SSP just not sure if they come with the inside thread for the POL. I'm also hoping my regulator is good but ill test all this after I clean her up this week.

Thanks

Change the fitting on the regulator and it should work fine.  It could probably be found local too.

You will love the performer when you get it done!

Dumb question... On what part of the SSP are the so called star nuts ?

@Chandy , star nuts are internal fasteners...they are inside the cross bars/tubes on the bottom of your frame.  Most of them rust out over time and need to be replaced.  Otherwise, the cart becomes wobbly.  You can find the ones I used here:

Also, search "star nuts" on this site and you will find much more.
I like my Kettles like my coffee....strong and black.
