Hi all,

Any ideas whether I can get parts to fix this stop cock from anywhere? Basically I need the head. House was built in the 1970s.

I turned it off to do some plumbing and it seized shut. Tried taking it out but it is in such an awkward place, managed to get the nuts undone but there is no slack in the pipes. Instead I took the two section out and in the garage managed to get it to do a quarter of a turn. No amount of backs and forwards movement would free it off so I took the washer assembly out and out it back together so we can have water over the bank holiday weekend.

I think your existing stopcock is a Pegler/Prestex brand (could be wrong though!). Toolstation have a Pegler 15mm stopcock listed (item 55154). I would think there's a good chance that will be a direct replacement for the headgear. £10.68
 
I believe it is a Prestex 69 but the length is more like 90mm rather than the 75mm this appears to be
