Looking for suggestions on finding a new gas peckcock valve. Sizes?

Two sizes for Motobecane - 10mm and 8mm

measure the old fuel tap threaded portion with a 10mm open end wrench so you can figure if it is 10mm or 8mm

Rebel,

Just to let you know I ordered the black side flow that you linked to for my 76 40t and it will not screw in all the way as it hits the bottom of the "floorboard" I even put a rubber washer on it to try and give it more room to thread in all the way but the black lever still hits and won't sit straight therfore the sidecover will not go on. Just lettin you know.

I prefer the metal side flow for Moby.

I will certainly keep that in mind if someone asks about a fueltap for a serie 40. Thanks for the heads up!

I had to file a little off mine to make it fit proper.
