I bought mine from Amel, but I just goggled " British thread ball valves", and a bunch of sites turned up. Seems there are a lots of British threads around. Worth a try. John "Moon Dog" SM248

I'd check with some machine shops to see if a fitting could be machined.
I am not keen on Marelon valves. If they get a piece of solid debris they can jam up. You can't use much force on them for fear of breakage. In my opinion, best to stick with traditional bronze. The other issue with Marelon or PVC is that they can be damaged from impact on the exterior. All of this is less a concern with an above the waterline fitting but why take the chance?
