Anyone have this problem? It was leaking out of the back side hose connector, but sealed the compessed fitting with JB Weld--it's rock solid. Replaced the rubber gasket and o-ring. Now it still leaks fuel to the carb--peeing. I'll be taking the tank off and flushing the grit out this week and will disassemble the petcock again. I'm thinking that the groove in the fuel tap lever has worn. Will try adding some JB to each end of the semicircle groove to effectively shorten it--as it may be overshooting the sealing surface of the rubber seal w/the 4 holes in it(that direct the fuel flow). Any other ideas?
