I went just about two summers and one winter with no petcock valve at all just a straight shot to the carby on my Morini . Had a couple of days that were hard starting finally despite putting a new float needle. It would never flood the bike when I was riding ever.. it just started decided to do it when it was parked all day..

I put a swamp cooler valve lol. made some fittings and put it in the stock placement that the petcock goes on this BoXer frame. Came out trick very happy with it now. To the average eye nobody can even tell it is a swamp cooler valve and nothing is loose or can remotely rattle.

Dogs shoot I was raised around livestock. That's nutten.

I just run over anything under 20 lb. Anything bigger than that seems to be recipe for disaster. ;-) I did get knocked over by an armadillo once. I ran over it at full speed because it was lying in the bike path and I saw it only the last instant after rounding a bend. It bucked up under the chain ring and flipped me off the bike. We were both ok, though. Think the armadillo shrugged it off easier.
I sorted out my new throttle cable and parts, but I have to wait till I find my solder. Oh well. I got some chores done so I can ride the motorized bicycle this weekend.

I'm thinking perhaps I should start thinking about this before I have a chiuaua hanging off my leg. ANYBODY?

P.S. and please, I don't really want to hurt the dog. The owner? Maybe.

Hope things get better Siverb9? Sounds pretty rough?

Happcheapskate Get your silver solder and flux from a HVAC type store. Lowes or Home Depot will not have it...

Double ouch.

I cut out some thick intake/etc type gaskets. It held up in an extremely high temp area on a mustang of ours so I think with alil RTV it'll seal for the exhaust good enough.

Found a total missing piece in the exhaust gasket that goes on the jug and the exh manifold, the manifold to muffler wasn't leaking so I put it's still nice looking gasket on the jug.

can't wait to fire it up tomorrow and hear her run without an exhaust leak.

SavageBlunts904, I am sorry to hear that you were hit!
I hope that you got insurance info and such from the idiot.
May you heal fast and painless!
Crashing SUX!

Goat Herder, I bought my silver bearing solder and special flux all in a blister card kit from Home Depot. It was not a bad price either.
It was difficult to find though. I had to ask an employee where it was.
Of all the places, it was in the cordless tools battery section, nowhere near the soldering supplies. Go figure!
It makes a great cable end!
