Replacing head on a 1988 4207

Postby Wrightsfd » July 30th, 2014, 5:09 pm

I'm having a heck of a time finding a replacement head for my 1988 4207. Has anyone replaced the stock Raritan head? I'm specifically trying to replace the forward head with one that is usable by a human. The stock head is tiny and I'd like something with more room. If you've done this I'd appreciate any assistance you might have with the brand and model that will fit. Thanks!

Rebuilt both of the Raritan Crown heads on my 1987 4207 and replaced the bowls with Raritan's "household size" along with the larger seats. Makes the wife alot happier. :-D

Because you have a larger area to aim at? ;-)

But interesting. I did not know they made such a thing. Does it simply bolt up to the existing flange on the pumpset?
Thanks
