Raritan "Cricket" Head

We have one of these old Crickets and need a rebuild kit. Raritan no longer supplies the parts so we are out of luck there. Hoping someone out there has one on their, no longer needed, shelf. Any assistance deeply appreciated.

Re: Raritan "Cricket" Head

That is a shame that the Cricket is out of production. That was a very clever design. You might try someone like Defender. They carry a lot of replacement part kits, and as a long shot someone like West Marine who used to stock a lot of Raritan rebuild kits.

The other thing is that Raritan used a lot of off the shelf parts, o-rings and the like and you may be able get many of the parts from other sources. I have not looked for a while but Raritan used to have a very good manual which used to be available on line and the the 'normal sourced' parts were called out by size.

I have always been a very big fan of the Tally-Ho's.

Re: Raritan "Cricket" Head

Thank you Jeff. I have been looking for a while without success. Hate to give it up as I am space challenged in the head area and the Cricket fits nicely. It still works but I know that it is old and sooner or later it will require parts, which are essential to have on-board anyway.
