Added weight for stability in the corners? Either way, it's shiny and I like it.

Re: making my own petcock

Only cost about 17 bucks, I work in a fabricating shop so making the adapter plate should be easy as pie

Re: making my own petcock

Cody, if it works, go for it.

Should be a cheap and reliable solution to your petcock problems...I would make sure there are no plastic pieces that could react with the gasoline though.

Would be interested to see the clearance with your contraption...

Re: making my own petcock

Cody you can make a smaller set up then that if you want to order some 1/4" NPT brass fittings. You can get a 90 degree 1/4" NPT ball valve which will save a significant amount of space
