I was not too happy with the two I got from Lytle. They leak by, new out of the box. It's a good thing I have a new, tight gross needle in my carb.|
Then, just last week I went to open the right side and the petcock handle came off in my hand.
I, for one, would like to upgrade if someone has a better mousetrap.

Here's a photo of Chris on the podium with the Henderson at the Quail a couple of weekends ago.
I was wondering what is out there for petcocks too. Saw some postings about Lytle's but they didn't look encouraging and are a few years old. I've got one that is seeping a bit and won't respond too my repair attempts.
The bike is a '29 KJ Stresmline. Does anyone know the thread size? It looks like I need to raise the tank on the right to get the old one out, the left is a maybe.
