I am trying to replace the head and hoses on an IP 29. I cannot seem to find the seacock that controls the intake. If it is the seacock I believe (right outside the head), than it appears not to be working. I shut it off but the water keeps coming out of the small hose I disconnected from the manual head pump. Is it possible that it’s hooked into the fresh water tank? I can’t see where.

Hopefully it's not hooked directly to the fresh water tank! Any kind of backwash would contaminate your fresh water, yuck! A lot of IP's have the head intake "T"ed off the engine intake seacock. Try closing that and see if you still get water to the head.

If you look at the schematics for the IP 29 I believe it shows the head water supply is tues in to the raw water intake for the engine.
