Most can be made straight by putting a piece of sand paper (emory cloth) on a large piece of glass (perfectly flat surface) and moving the head in a circular pattern until of the mating suraces are sanded. If you use emory cloth you can add oil to the surface and it will give a smoother surface and work faster. I have taken heads the had 1/16 inch gouges in the mating surface and made them flat in 20 minutes doing this. If you don't want to do this buy a new one from Kohler. Roger

Huh, well that's a cool idea, thanks. What grit do you use?

My current one has a stripped plug hole, that's already been oversized, so I'm planning to buy a new one, but you'd get one from Kohler, wouldn't trust used?

I would just search eBay or put a wtb ad on here, there should be a number of k series heads that should work.

I use medium grade emory cloth and it doesn't have a number. Comes in extra fine, fine, medium, coarse, and extra coarse. Roger
