Leaking OLD Hayward 6-way...

Hi all,

I've got an older setup, used to be sand but converted to DE about 12 years ago. My (side mount) backflush valve is leaking water out the top around the handle. I can afford to replace it, but am having trouble finding the right one. All the ones I've found while searching have the inlets/outlet on opposite sides, which leads me to possibly rebuilding this one. Have not looked into whether a kit is even available for this one. I thought the label I snapped was the part number, but it's only an advisory. If this is not enough info, I'll try and find a part number tomorrow...
