This is a duplicate thread....my apoligies, if that's a faux pas.
have a Groco HF that stinks, in every sense.
Could use advice. Like Wilcox Head Mate because reviews seem pretty good--less spash?--and it's cheap, so I can throw it away in 30 months.
It appears...from the mediocre product websites...that hoses are the same diameter. anyone out there done this? Do the hoses attach at approximately the same place?
Also, I'm guessing the bolt pattern is not identical. Are there even bolts? This is for a Catalina 30, and I don't seem to be able to access an area to reach nuts....so perhaps they are merely screws.
If so, will the new head come with those fasteners...and if not, what would you recommend?
I'm trying, for the first time ever, to fix something with one (1) trip to the hardware store.
