Apart from the corks the tap body wears, clean ,then shine a light and put yer specs on, look hards at the tap body bore where the cork rubs, is most of the plating still there, if so , it might work, are there deep scores, obvious wear , less than 50 % plating, its worn, even the best cork will struggle.
Once upon a time I too admired the elegant simplicity of the original taps. that lasted 20 years, Mine are all worn out. I was badly prejudiced against them when one one of the taps( reserve) pulled off in my hand , had to ride with my thumb over the hole. I wont have them now.
