Pat,

The information Bill, Mark, and Dan provided you is correct.  I just replace the ball valve in my forward head with the Groco part number IBV-1250BSPP.  Because it is a straight thread you will need to use a thread sealant to both seal the threads and to fix the ball valve in a position where you can access and turn the handle.  I used Loctite 592 Thread Sealant which has worked out well so far.
