Thanks Mark! Having the part number really helps and now gives me better options.


I also just found BSP thread valves at in Ft. Lauderdale. They are the US distributor for Maetrini (good quality Italian made).



With best regards,

I just replaced the ball valve in my forward head.  Believe it or not, but I got mine on  Do a google search for "IBV-1250BSPP" which is Groco's part number for this valve and you will find several sources for it.  Defender will also special order it for you from Groco but it takes awhile.  They will do that for most of the manufacturer's they carry.
