Fuel petcock nipple pulled out....

Recommended Posts

while trying to slide the fuel line off at the tank, the nipple that goes into the petcock completely pulled out. can this just be tapped back in or am i going to have problems? i didn't see anything other than what looks like just a pressed fit. thanks

Clean it up. Put a drop of Loctite on it and tap it back in. I do this all the time on old Honda stuff. It is a good permanent fix.

Right up until the diaphram went on my petcock (8 years) that nipple came out with the hose. Never leaked once. Maybe not the brightest to leave it that way, but the earth still turned. :banana:

I was going to say-a little JB weld.

I'd say JB weld or green thred locker. (it's shaft retaining compound)
