Tapered cone seacock fix

I recently pulled the cone out of a seacock, and found the tapered cone was cracked almost the entire circumference. Don't suppose there is a source for replacing just the cone?

Find a used one and lap it in with valve grinding paste?

But you could spend more on gas and take longer looking, finishing up with an old seacock.

Just buy new and fit.

That's true. A new one shouldn't be too expensive. It is only 3/4".

Is this a seacock made out of maleron and made by Forespar? If so, Forespar will replace internal parts. Mail your querie to them, provide model number, size and age. They replaced some parts for free for me on my 20+ year old boat. great service!

If no spares available, best choice, you can also get a local machine shop to make a new taper and lap that in, will save disturbing the main body and through hull fitting. Engineering colleges are usually looking for real projects for the students.
Safe sailing.
