I gotta bitch about cheap ass parts that you pay good dollars for. I bought a new fuel petcock cuz my old one was clogged or some crap. I put the new on on (it came from Preston) and I craked er good and tight (you know how those shovel fat bobs leak all over your nice carb) and it stripped the nut, not the threads but the nut. Now I gotta use teh old V grips to tighten it enough on a brand new freakin petcock. Gotta love that cheap crap.

Skeeez! where y'a been man?

I hate sh*t parts! Gott'a be careful ordering from the catalogs. Sometimes y'a have noway of knowing t'ill y'a get them, then you just have to remember to stick with brand name stuff.

With some exceptions y'a get what y'a pay for. B)

Yep, welcome back Skee. Cheap parts suck. For better or worse, if you by it from Harley it generally is pretty well made, if expensive. WTF.

I dug up my old skool fuel petcock from my toolbox today (the one with the 2 little switch type things for turning on and reserve). If it works I am going to mail this chrome POS back to Preston. :D
