Re: replacement panhead petcock

You mentioned bad news with repops. I will say I have had a few but the number of bad to good that I have sold hasn't made me quit selling repop parts when the OEM ones are no longer around.

Re: replacement panhead petcock

So do you have the front petcock with the long rod that goes though the tank or do you have the 3/8 pipe style. I have both styles.
