You can rebuild the fuel head yourself with a $69 Salvox rebuild kit, it's easy.
When rebuilding a cast iron fuel head don't apply too much sealant around the control pressure pin hole in the stainless steel diaphragm or sealant squeeze out will clog it while tightening the bolts that hold it together and if that happens you won't have any control pressure.
The aluminum fuel heads are wayyyy easier because they use a rubber diaphragm and they go back together dry with no sealant. Just a little oil on the rubber o-rings on the control plunger cylinder so they slide into place without tearing or rolling over when assembling the two halves of the fuel head.

Here's a couple pics I snapped while rebuilding an SC fuel head.
