Petcock Bowl O-ring?
« on: March 15, 2008, 04:18:32 PM »
I wonder if someone could unscrew their petcock bowl next time it's convenient and tell me if there's an o-ring up inside the housing?

My bowl is weeping at the threads. Since I just completed a maintenance - which included cleaning the petcock bowl - I might have omitted the o-ring upon reinstallation.

It looks like it might be designed as a metal-on-metal fit for the Electra X gas tank petcock.

TIA,
Matt

Mine is a plastic bowl with filter inside so nice and visible (Classic 2003), but does have an 'O' ring, yes.
If it ain't broke-------------------------- fix it 'till it is!
