No, gas will not come out of the petcock unless there is a vacuum applied to the vacuum line. It is a vacuum actuated petcock, NOT a gravity feed.
When the engine is running, the carb constantly places a vacuum on the petcock. The gas left in the carb when you shut it down is what starts the bike the next time you crank it.
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
