Re: Seacock for aft head
There are two types of BSP threads;
- BSPP - Female & male thread are both parallel (also known as G)
- BSPT - Female thread is parallel and the male thread is tapered
Since the ball valve is female on both ends it might be labeled as BSPP or just BSP.
Hope this helps.

Mark ,I was thinking I wanted a valve with BSP threads , Groco has a BSPP thread. Is that what you bought and is what I need? I am not sure exactly the difference ,both are straight thread .

Take a look at the Groco valve, I used this valve. It has a
grease zerk to keep the valve operating smoothly. https://www.groco.net/products/valves-seacocks/inline-valves/ibv-series-bspp-thread
