I have a small 3/4" bronze seacock for the head inlet that is almost impossible to open/close. Plus, if it's not set 'just right' when it's open it will drip/weep around handle.

I'm thinking it must be original since it has the rod type handle which I haven't seen available. It's also kinda 'unusual' since it also has an extra outlet that serves as a saltwater feed plumbed to the galley.

I haven't attempted to disassemble/lubricate it since I'm not sure how anyway. Would it be just as easy to go ahead and replace the rubber cone as it would to lubricate it?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
