Petcock hole nut stripped,YEah!

benji and i popped off a cock today, too put a new one on, and the damn hole was stripped when we tried to put the new one on. Maxi.

What could we do, to rethread, petcock power.

Re: Petcock hole nut stripped,YEah!

I had that problem once, I never fixed it, but I came up with some ideas.

1- plummers tape. wrap a layer or 2 around the threads on the petcock and try to screw it in http://www.plumbingworld.com/tapes.html hey, it works with water.

2- JB weld. You may never be able to get it off again, but I bet it would work great

3- Expensive professional approach. get a pro to make a bigger hole with new threads, get a bigger petcock. (try not to spend more than the moped cost)

Re: Petcock hole nut stripped,YEah!

when you meant "popped off" did you mean unscrewed or popped off. because if you popped it off, then thats how you stripped the threads.

use two hose clamps and an inch long peice of hose.

DON"T LOOSE ANY PARTS!!! I let a small piece of something roll down my driveway and it disappeared into the grass, the petcock pissed out all my fuel until i clogged it up with a rubbur stopper and plastic. Had to purchase a new petcock :(
