    Should I replace both?

    Removed my fuel tank to replace the petcock tonight.

    Seems I made another rookie mistake by not removing the old petcock before ordering the replacement.

    Old petcock


    The worn gasket explains my fuel leak.

    New petcock


    While removing the tank I also discovered that the one of the previous owners used too long of a screw to secure one of the tank shrouds and pierced the tank. The shroud screw fits snug and does not seem to allow fuel to leak at this point.


    Should I just order a new gasket, or the correct style petcock and use the current tank or would it be best to just get a replacement fuel tank with a new petcock already attached?

    I see quite a few options on Amazon and eBay and am leary of the quality. Are these decent options or should I try to find an OEM tank?

    Thanks Elixur. The parts arrive safe and sound today. Hopefully I can find time to install them this week.
