it is indeed a model 277. Here is the Dessalator reference, but I know it will me much cheaper in the US. Complete pump head TET_POMPCAT277_COMP
I just had mine fail when the heads of two of the four bolts that hold the pump head to the body sheared off. That's stainless for you. When I queried Dessalator about it they blamed it on the vibration of the ship!! My unit had 903 hours on it.
I would strongly advise that these bolts are changed every 700 hours to avoid the expense of a pump rebuild or replacement.
There is a number on the pump body that I can get you tomorrow if you wish.
