Petcock rebuild kit question

Hi. I really need to rebuild my petcock, it's leaking and I can't make it stop! Looking at this kit:

Does that look right to you guys? Would you recommend something else?

That's what I used. Make sure the tiny stud/nipples are aligned into the receiving holes or it will leak. No need to ask me how I know this.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Looks good Ceal. Like fc said just watch the position when you. Put it back together and you'll be fine. Good luck.

Yea, I almost put it back together before checking those once lol, but I noticed them right before putting on the screws.

I was just checking with you guys cuz there's a big price difference between this kit and some others, just making sure it's all there. Thanks!

I wonder why they don't give you the spring with the kit. It really should come in there.

It should but you don't want to cut into their profit margin do ya? . Guess they figure the spring's gonna last probably longer then the petcock casing itself lol. Let us know how she runs.

I'll check the screw holes carefully, thanks for heads up.

I have to wait a bit to purchase it... I just need like $2.50 more in my account to order them. Which sucks, having to get someone to make a trip to the bank (in the U.S.) for just $2.50!!

I'll probably order it tomorrow or the day past though.

What about this one?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Kawas...item35b241cdb0

this one has the square block thing where the diaphragm goes and the other doesn't. Material looks different though. Which should I go with? The first one I pointed out or this one?
