Just got my first Moped 1978 Columbia Commuter it needs a new fuel Valve, previous owner bought it brand new let it sit for 20 years in garage with fuel in it any suggestions about a new valve or where I can find a good supplement part??
now by fuel valve i think you mean a shut off switch if so they can be obtained at a lawn moer shop
i get the feeling you got this for free it looks almost brand new
but ive got the same moped but mine is a 1980
We have the original German made fuel valve (petcock) for that model. A lawn mower valve will be made for 1/4 inch fuel line rater than 3/16 inch fuel line as used on that model moped and a lown mower valve will not mount to the metric male threads extending from the fuel tank nor will it have the built in fuel filter or reserve feature.
So is there Concenceis that i need this part a (petcock) or will i be ok fiting a lawn moer part to the Moped??
Take Chris' advice and get a real one.
i was going to order the right one until i found out it was 30 dollars
Alright So Im going to go try to find a Petcock now any important things i schould no befor i go searching, Questions etc
Hi, I am looking for this same part. Gas is leaking right out of the switch, as if a seal has gone bad. Do you still have these petcocks for sale?
I’m sure. It’s only 20 years later.
You can get the fuel petcock from Treats and for less than $30.
