Sea cocks and changeover valves

Once the seacock was removed from the boat it was dismantled which needed a bit of use of a drift and a big hammer to split the two parts of the sea cock as it had been tighten down so hard that it seized together


Once it is apart it can be cleaned up and machined up to make it work again.



This new seacock is one that is designed to not seize as it as a grease channel in machined into the bearing faces which is feed by a grease nipple 


The manual bilge pump changeover valve which is u/s as the operating handle is not connected to the changeover valve in the middle of the valve
