Well I just Googled to see. Boy there are several threads about "dripping Spartan seacock" In the pics the plug looks very hollow... I wonder if they go out of round a lot? That could cause a problem. Are you able to measure the roundness with a caliper or micrometer?
Sorry for the slow reply. Been distracted lately. Spent the weekend working on the boat and got the engine fired up after sitting for almost seven years. Getting close to being a boater again.

I haven't had time to look further at the seacock but I have a spare that I picked up used. When I get time think I will plug the through hull (maybe use the toilet plunger trick), and pull it apart to see what I can see.

Thanks for the advice but I'll stick with bronze.
