that is what I am trying to find out. I have a local distributor for pumps that can get me the SS head for 195.50 + tax. MoreBeer.com is like 240.00. Are there others out there?

The word NEED never really entered into the equation until I started to gum up the threads on the Poly Plastic one that I have. Plus I kind of think the side input and face output would be handy too.

I am using SS tri-clamp fittings on mine and the metal treads can and will cross the plastic NPT threads if you are not VERY careful.

I was not so careful.

Are you sure the outlet is on the face? I have this pump: March pump part # 809 PL/HS-C. All of the pumps I've seen have the inlet on the face of the pump housing and the outlet on the side. Not saying there isn't one, but I haven't seen it. - Dwain

Which ever is the outlet or the inlet I don't really care. the head is still turnable and I can make it work better, i think. The model number you stated above is for a Poly plastic head. NOT a Stainless head. 809 PL/HS-C FYI

The march comes in many formats. One has a 3/4" inlet on the face and a 1/2" outlet in the standard position. I believe this is the best arrangement provided that you can feed the pump with 3/4" lines.

brewmasterswarehouse sells that format in plastic.

i have 1/2 inch lines and I was not asking for a history or catalog for the March pump Company. I am looking for a Stainless Steel 1/2 head for an 809 series pump. who else sells them besides MOREBEER.com, who sells them for WAY too much money?
