Has anyone actually worked on Spartan Seacocks? I serviced all of mine during my recent haulout. I had done them about 3 years ago. After a month, I have one that is dripping. I tightened the combination nut/flange, but can't get it to stop weeping. My question is, is there a shoulder inside the seacock body, that limits the depth
of the tapered plug
, or is it strictly the nut/flange against the body of the valve. If that is the case, if lapped too often (which I haven't done), is it possible that the small end of the tapered plug
could extend just a touch past the body, so that the nut/flange is hitting the taper rather than the body. If that is the case, I would assume there is no way to correct the situation, other than a new seacock.
