Head Refurb or Buy New?

If all you are getting is a little water at the pump shaft, it is cheap and easy to simply replace the packing seal. The last boat that I owned had a really basic Brydon-Boy, which was not a great head, and it was fine after 17 years, except for replacing pump shaft seals. The Wilcox Crit''s are higher quality heads and are expensive to replace with an equal quality (not that the rebuild kits are cheap).
