    Thumbs up Cheap Pet Cocks

    I just want to tell what I found when I bought 2 Petcocks off of Ebay, $7.99 + Shipping each.
    they are both leaking when they are shut off.
    I think I wasted my Money.

    Some times the cheap stuff works great, other times not so much. All ways a crap shoot going with non OEM parts but on the other hand, OEM are expensive. Thanks for letting us know about these.

    You pay your nickle and you take your chance -- I bought 3 of them several year ago for about $5 each. 2 of them I used and 1 I gave away and all 3 are working fine. Go figure
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    I sure hate to buy them again, Maybe Ill try and add a shutoff valve along with the already added Fuel filter.
    I have not took them a part yet, maybe there is something that can be done inside too.

    What does the seller say? You should complain to them and to eBay.

    Backslash it with a water hose maybe something hung it open. Then blow it out with air and see if it works.

    IIRC, the OEM petock is only around $15.00, not worth taking the chance INHO.
