Leaky fuel tap

Post by GHamilton » Sat Jul 08, 2017 2:15 pm

Fuel tap on the right side is leaking. I'm getting ready to offer it (1980 900SS) up for sale and need to get these little problems fixed. I'll be buying a pair but I'm not sure of the thread size to order. Any input will be appreciated.

If there is a nut holding the tap on then it is 16x1.0 you need.

No nut? 12x1.5
