I went out today to install a new fuel filter. As I was removing my fuel tank, I had already removed the spring clamp and was pulling the fuel line off the petcock the brass nipple came out with the hose.
I drained the tank and removed the petcock and disassembled it. I cleaned the nipple and petcock body very good with scotch bright and brake clean. I had some JB weld, the 4 minute kind, I put a very thin coat on the tube and reinstalled it in the body. I tapped it in firm with a soft hammer, let it set for a hour then put fuel back in it.
Every thing is good to go, no leaks. With that said, I am not going to trust it to stay put. I went pumpless 2 weeks ago and saw that some one said the pingel was not necessary for being pumpless. I priced a new Yamaha petcock and the pingel was not that much more. So I bought the Pingel.
To say that I was not shocked when that hose came off in my hand is an understatement.
