  • Fuel petcock- metal hose separated

    While starting to rejet my 05; I tried to remove the gas hose from the shut off valve from the tank. Then this separated, how do I put it back?

      I figured if it ever happened again I put a little blue loc-tite on it. Theres a member on here that rebuilds the petcock for better flow.

        If you ever pull the Petcock out of the tank to rebuild, then that's the time to make threads in that pressed in part of the Petcock. It will tap to 1/8" NPT. Just make sure you use a good, sharp tap, and cut the threads slowly.

          Happened to me, I just cleaned it up with some sand paper smeared some red loctite on it, tapped it back in, that was about 5K miles ago, no issues.

            Just clean the outside with a rag and brake cleaner and shove it back in...no biggie.

                What goes into the threaded outlet once tapped? And is this done to increase flow, or just to keep fitting from coming loose?

                Yes, it just keeps the fitting from coming loose.
                If you want a cheep fix, clean, put red Loctite on it and press it back in.

              After tapping 1/8" NPT then put a 1/8" NPT to 5/16" hose nipple in it using teflon tape.
              A lot more to do if your wanting more flow out of the Petcock.

              Here is what I do. If your wanting one, let me know. I'll be away after Wednesday, and be limited on doing anything this summer.
