I have acquired a second hand Pluto gun and am new to kegging. I have set up my kegs and lines (4 kegs). I'm not sure if I have all the parts for the gun? Does this look right?

Also, if I want to do a force carbination, do I just disconnect the other kegs, turn up the regulator, do my stuff, turn it down and reconnect?

Sorry for the stupid questions, but I don't really want stuff anything up.

Yes, but the nut and olive are for 6X10 line, if you use 6X10 line then no problem, if not you will need to either get the right line or change the nut and olive for the ones to fit the line you use (typically 4X7 or 5X8).
Its an Andale gun if that helps, if your LHBS cant help you Andale have a store in Brisbane I believe.

No, the olive should be the other way around. Heat the end 10mm of the line, fit the nut then push the olive in till its flush with the end, the line then folds in behind the shoulder of the olive and seals.

I find a pen works well for pushing the olive in
