Anti Siphon Valves

Sheesh, who'd a thunk it would be this hard???

Ok, here's the problem -- the valves in three of my anti-siphon loops are non-functional. The loops are bronze, and have screw-in valves to facilitate maitenance (which apparently escaped the PO's PM schedule.)

The leather rings and plastic flappers are toast, and need to be replaced.

But that's the rub -- I've been looking in every store/chandlery I run across, and cannot find replacement valves.

Can anyone recommend a place to look?

Thanks in advance,

It would help if you said who made the anti-siphon valves, as they're likely to be manufacturer specific. If you can't find a manufacturer on the a photo of them, as someone might be able to tell what make/model they are. It might also be a good idea to say what boat you have, since they may be original to the boat, and as such, known to someone who has experience with the boat.

I'd also recommend you read the post in my signature, since I think it'd help you get more out of sailnet.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
