Default Fuel petcock fix

Hello all,

The other day we wrapped up Brett mavericks' chopper build.

The petcock that came with his kit was basically sans threads. There were some scores that kinda looked like threads, but it wouldn't tighten to the fuel tank. I had a spare, but it we started looking for a fix.

The hole in the tank is the right size for a 1/8" pipe tap! Grainger sells a mini 1/8 NPT ball valve. Add a 1/8 NPT barbed nipple and you'll have a really nice leak proof petcock.
