Petcock rebuild?

Evening all,
IMentioned in my inro post I have a 2003 Vol. that was in desperated need of de varnish and de rust. Good news, tank will be done and red coat sealer applied by fridday. Now, looking for a petcock rebuild kit and can't seem to locate any reference to one. Seem to remember having the same problem when I owned a Katana. Really, it's just the oring inside, there was just a black glob left after she sat so long. If i could find that, i think i'd be in business. Thanks for any help.

If it's just an O ring, take the petcock down to a "real" auto parts store (NAPA, CarQuest, etc.) and they can find the right O ring to fit it. They have a whole assortment of different sizes.

Lead, or follow, but just stay out of my way.

Or go to Onieda Suzuki and go through their fisch and order an OEM gasket.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Oring is not shown on the fische:

FUEL GAUGE AND FUEL PETCOCK...

Thought about finding one that fits, but the oring i need is the internal one, that is on the end of the plunger that gets pulled open by the vaccuum off the carb. Afraid if it's too tight, it will bind and not be able to move, too loose and it will not stop the fuel.

Well best of luck, haven't had mine apart so can't help on the size. You might want to try a O ring kit that has graduated sizes. Remember that O rings are not only different in OD/ID but also in cross section size, as well as MM and US inch. If you have measuring tools you could measure the shaft or groove size and the mating part size and then look up a suitable O ring by ID/OD which will give you the proper cross section. And if you do this, get Viton. which is more fuel resistant than vinyl nitrile. Harbor Freight has a Viton O ring assortment kit. Depending on the configuration of the valve you will have to determine what the sealing points are.

Oh yeah and I forgot Durometer, which is hardness. You should stay around 70 for that application.
