Seems like Wilcox more or less just does heads now
I guess there was just decreasing demand for cast bronze fittings

Have you looked at buck algonquins lineup?

Harborguy,

If you can't find a new one, you might have some luck getting a good used one from Sam at Marine Consignment of Wickford. Give him a call (401) 295-9709 or I could go over and take a look for you. He has 3 stores filled with stuff like that.

You sound like me, Mud. I just bought a 10 year old plotter to replace the 20 year old one I have. I'm slowly moving into the modern age. Now for the 30 year old engines...

John, do you have a link for him ? Does he have any older electronics ?

Don,
I just checked his web site is down, but yes he has all sorts of old electronics. What do you need? I will go see him today.

Probably could make one with some easy cutting and drilling too. Bronze is soft enough. Just a thought.

The Buck stuffing box is not drilled therefore you can drill the box to match your current holes.
