Thanks everyone.

Alan and Tony,I will be going the "rebuild it" route. I bet I can take the OLD one I pulled out and make it new again also?


I am wondering if a Viton O ring would be a BETTER choice to use????? (Works on my race stuff. )

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

There have been plenty of threads about these valves. I am very fortunate to have never had a problem with any of my three. Probably all three this year. I believe that the general consensus has been to stick with the original valve and use viton O-rings.

THAT is what I am doing. Took my valve apart this week end and I HAVE to "Order" Viton" seals this week. :( NO ONE caries VITON around me.

Hello Mike , Yes as Glen said use the Viton o ring I have been using them for years now with very good luck also . Yes you should be able to reuse the your old original one with out a problem , I do not buy any new ones at all I just keep swapping them out and rebuilding them , once they are in it only takes a minute to change the o ring in the tractor . Thanks Tony

I used viton in mine and was told viton will withstand the new gas. So far no leaks.

OK.LAST question,

What size is this O ring???? Reason I am asking is in case thos one I am pulling out is distorted and ruined enough not to be able to get a good measurement on it. (Probably can,but I am just asking.)

Hello Mike , The little o-ring on the needle valve is 4 mm. o.d. and 2 mm. i.d. the o-ring that seals valve to tank is 9/16 o.d. and .708 i.d. sometimes referred to as a #909 o-ring according to my notes dated April 2001 when I made my jig for the Bridgeport . Thanks Tony
