fuel valve stuck in the gas tank

I was cleaning out the rust in the gas tank of my 77' 50V and when I went to unscrew the fuel valve, the head of it snapped off, leaving the rest in the threaded hole in the tank. I was going to try to use a screw extractor but before I make things worse, (which I am very good at) I thought I would check and see if anyone had any advice. Thanks

Its broken now, just extract it anyway you can and buy a new one from Chris at Mopedwarehouse.

Does the tank discharge have male threads or female threads?

Re: fuel valve stuck in the gas tank

its kind of a mess down there, but if i had to guess, I'd say female.
