Default Re: Higher flow petcock?

You guys were right. I made a mistake. The gutted petcock was leaking so I replaced it with another gutted one, which actually was not gutted but I thought it was, and the little plastic piece/rubber was causing the problem. They both are junk, so I took one and cut off the fuel line nipple, drilled it out to 5/16" and epoxied in a plastic shutoff valve from the hardware store. I could have cut it off at the threads and epoxied the valve to the inside of the threads, but then I would not be able to use a wrench to tighten it to the tank. Here it is- works perfectly!

Thanks for the replies... I may never have gone to the store and may have ordered another junk petcock from ebay had you guys not replied!
