My Y-Valve handle has broken and they don't manufacture it any more. Other then replacing the existing valve does anyone know where I can get a new handle for it?

Based on the age, your sanitary piping may also be as brittle if it hasn't been replaced. The Bosworth Sea-leact valves are available in newer models that should fit where the old valve was.

I have the Forespar Y valves that seem to operate pretty smoothly. I lubed the heck out of the inside with Vaseline before installing them.
