Replacing seacocks
« on: 13 July, 2006, 01:25:11 »
Please excuse the fact that I do not speak dutch.   I am replacing the seacocks and skin fittings on a Contest and have discovered that the skin fittings are sealed with a 'rubber' washer. Does anyone know the best way to replace?  With a new washer, and if so what material, or with a sealant such as Sikoflex.

Hi Tony,

go to Google.com, search in 'Images' for the word 'seacock' and you will find a few good ways to replace them.

Cheers,

Hello,

I just bought a 1969 contest 30 and replaced seacocks. Used Sikaflex. You polish and clean the hole, put sikaflex in both sides ( white) and screw the seacock (strong enough) and let it dry for 24 hours. Then screw the rest of the part of the seacock.
Yours
Ramon.
