Happy New Year to you and all , I put a tiny blob of soft solder on the tip and when screwed in it makes it's own seat , worked for me as it does with Harley and Indian screw in taps too . Best wishes , Ken

What is everyone doing for leaky fuel taps?
Chris' Streamline is leaking just enough to be a PIA and make a mess. I was hoping a new float and needle in the carb would be enough of a boost to help the leaky tap but no such luck.
Seems like any modern replacement looks like brass billet. On the plus side at least they'd be pretty hidden under the tank.
I've also run across some cast valves but they're a 1/4 turn ported type of valve, not a screw in needle valve.

Also still looking for the chrome hood on the instrument light.

TIA

btw, Happy New Year!
