You could have any of a number of different heads. Go to a website such as defender marine, west marine, or whatever marine supply house you like, and look for the picture of a new one like you currently have. From there you can buy a rebuild kit.
Wear gloves!

Hmm. I had the exact same head you described in my 88 Carver.
I could not remember the brand name, so I just went and looked up marine heads. Groco, Jabsco, and Raritan. But none with a model similar to what you have and I had.

So, what i would do is take the thing apart, plug the waste hose so the boat doesn't get all smelled up, disassemble the thing, and bring the parts to a local marine supply place. They should be able to match the parts up.

Good luck with one of the funnest jobs on a boat!
Thanks

Very similar and definitely a newer model. On mine, it was mechanical, and then I bought a power kit with a motor.
I did rebuild it once because of the joker valve. If I remember correctly, it is in the joint below the pump part. Could be wrong; it was long time ago.
Thanks
