Allmand 31 head rebuild

I got a lot out of travelers request for hose replacement but every time we use the head we get a foot bath from the raw water. I could use a source for a rebuild kit. The only picture of the head is attached.

I believe I have a Thetford, Wilcox Crittenden, Headmate 1460, and the Maintenance Kit, I need is a (#37072) please send an e mail if you can help along with a reply. The boat is on the hard for two more weeks and I'm on vacation getting all ready for relaunch.

Appreciate any help.

Re: Allmand 31 head rebuild

Have you tried contacting Thetford? You may wind up having to bite the bullet and replace the head if you can't find any rebuild kits. There are some good threads about different heads and what people prefer, if you decide to go that route instead.

Re: Allmand 31 head rebuild

Often the rebuild kits are half the price of the new heads. If it looks like screws are at all corroded, I would save half a day of screaming and just replace it. I believe Rariton is the current favorite without spending a ton.

Well I take that back the kit is not too bad
