Gas Petcock Problem......

My petcock needs to be either rebuilt or replaced. Gas flows through it no matter what, even in off.

I had oil/gas leaking out of the weep hole, does this mean the carb float is stuck/bad, or will constantly flowing gas get through no matter what?

I watched the level in the oil sight glass go up as the gas flowed in, it took a few days, but what came out the weep hole definitely was gas and oil.

Rebuild existing petcock, get new OEM petcock, or get the "other" one people have bought as a replacement.

Thanks in advance for the help.

The alternate OEM replacement from the TW200 is only about $16 brand new. To me that's a no brainer compared to rebuilding the original unit. Part number is 23F-24500-20-00. You can even order it (the OEM TW200 unit, not a knock off) from Amazon with Prime shipping for less than $19.
