Jon, thanks for the heads up on checking the empty bowl lever. We had the hard pumping problem. Checked the
lever today, problem solved! Lever was not all the way to the right. A little push to the right and all is well. Do not think the lever ever moved from vibration. Think our problem was a 5 year old grandson. He is all about exploring everything on the boat. Love it when he sails,he is as tall as the wheel so he needs a little help keeping a line. He is happiest calling out " Coming About." Really likes to turn. Straight line sailing ⛵️
isn't as much fun.
 Again, thank you Jon, saved me a lot of boat bucks.

Phil you’re very welcome, and glad it solved your problem.

Thanks to Alex, I just received my new Raritan Super Flush from Marine Sanitation and Supply. Next week’s project. I couldn’t pass on that price.

The willingness of so many, from so many different places, to share their experience and thoughts is why this forum is so great.

Congrats on your new head!!  It was an easy afternoon project for me.  I used a dremmel sanding drum to enlarge the hole in the bulkhead to fit the slightly deeper head elbow.  Post a picture when you get it set up.
