Re: Willcox-Crittenden Headmate - Fix or Float Test?

So will the PHII and PHC both fit a Wilcox Crittenden Head Mate? The only advantage of the PHC is that it takes up less room in the head and is a bit cheaper?

I have the WC Headmate on my boat and just bought the rebuild kit; we'll see (and smell) how it goes.

I liked our WC Headmate(s) for many years. Finally got a PHII. As far as "rathings" go, from worst to better to best: Groco, Jabsco, Headmate, PHII and then the Lavacs and electrics.
