Head Rebuild of Wilcox Crittenden Skipper II
     
The head brocken down
 

Assembled

  Detail view  
 

This head needed to be rebuilt so a new gasket kitfrom Wilcox Crittenden was ordered and installed.  In addition the connecting rod was cracked and needed to replaced.  This was done last season but the unit needed a repainting from the years of neglect and leaks.  This unit is very sturdy, all cast bronze and very easy to work on.

I completed the head reconditioning.  I used an Epoxy Appliance paint from Rust-oleum.  It was very easy to brush on and produced a nice smooth finish.  I will see how it holds up.
