I recently received a chugger center inlet pump. Not what I wanted -- I wanted the inline version.

Is it possible to simply unscrew the stainless center inlet head and replace it with a stainless inlet head?

Or do I need to replace the whole chugger pump?

It should be an easy swap between center-inlet and in-line pump heads. The problem may be laying your hands on a new head.
[edit] The folks at Chugger Pumps seem to be fairly amenable to swaps, so if you haven't actually used yours yet, you might want to give them a call and see if they'd swap if you picked up the shipping. It'd likely be cheaper than buying a new head + shipping...
