fuel petcock removal

Recommended Posts

i have an older xl70 that i am restoring and am pretty much left with fixing the tank up. i wanted to put that cream inside of it but i will be dammed if i can't figure out how to get the petcock out. i am by no means an novice mechanic nor am i an expert but there are no screws or bolts visible. usually there are two bolts you take out to get it out but i can't see anything and don't want to push my like since vintage parts are a little harder to come by.

thanks adam

My ATC70 doesn't have the petcock on the tank, it's on the carb. It just has two fittings coming out of the bottom of the tank. I don't know if the XL is set up like that or not.

From what I can see on the Service Honda online microfiche, there is a 6x16 machine screw that holds the petcock in place. It looks as though you have to remove the lower fuel bowl to access it.

just wanted to let everyone know just like the other guy said there is a bolt that goes straight through the bowl.. remove the bottom of the bowl then the fuel screen and it is hidding underneath there... easy as pie.

thanks

Use Por-14, NOT Kreem to seal the tank btw. Kreem is crap, it'll peal/flake after a year or two, Por-14 holds up MUCH better.
