Rene,
I have experience with your seacocks. I just bought my W 32 and the discharge head, Groco, was frozen open. All the others pleased to work after heavy, long lubrication and wiggling and stuff. Anyway, out of seven seacocks, they all worked except that one. That one was the only one that had lost its ground wire. Electrolysis had gotten to that one, and that one alone. It was seized up 8 ways to Sunday. I got her in the yard and dismounted and lubricated all very satisfactorily, but that one was shot, shot, shot. So, whatever you do, ground them all, in my humble opinion.
BTY some of mine are gounded to the chainplates in the head compartment. Does anyone have experience with that. Is it standard? Thanks.
Randy

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!

See the full list here!
