So I rebuilt my petcock today.
One thing I noticed was that when draining the tank through the petcock into a can, gas only came out of one of the two hoses. I had attached a length of spare tubing to the outlets and applied vacuum to the center port on the petcock.
Is one hose meant as a feed for fuel and the second a vent tube? Or do I perhaps have a clog in one of the internal channels of the petcock. After disassembling, cleaning and reassembly with new gaskets, I have the same function.
when letting gas drain through the petcock, I only get a flow through the one hose. If I block off the second hose with my finger, the flow from the first tube slows, but doesn't completely stop. when i let go of the second hose, I get a small backflow of gas through that hose, but no more then a teaspoon full or so.
......I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.
