If your tank doesn't leak, try the repair suggested by Texas and save a lot of $$$$. I did the tank route because my tank was not savable.
Your call.

When you do the o-ring replacement, do you HAVE to replace the rivet? Or can you just be careful and only open it one turn?

I'm not sure what you mean by being careful and only opening something one turn. You HAVE to remove the rivet to get the stem of the valve out of the housing, and you have to get the stem out to replace the o-ring. If you want to try putting that same rivet back in once the o-ring has been replaced, you're welcome to try, but it will likely leak around the shaft of the rivet since the rivet is now loose in its hole. Tapping the hole and replacing the rivet with a screw has worked for most folks.

Best to tap the rivet hole to 10/32 and install a screw.Without the screw or the rivet in there the stem could easily back out under vibration and you'd have a massive fuel leak on top of a hot engine.

Worked for me, drill out the rivet, drill out the shaft and tap. Doesn't take much time at all, you can buy a tap and drill combo at about any hardware store if you don't already heve them. I think I tapped mine at 10-24 but don't remember now. Good luck, and keep posting..Kent in KS

Let me try again. Will the valve leak through the rivet hole if the rivet is not replaced by drilling and taping? In the video it shows threads on one valve but does not look like any threads on the other. I am trying to figure out if I can do this without removing the tank. It would be hard to drill and tap valve without removing the tank.

Bill, Their are 2 "O" ring seals involved with the valve.One is between the tank and valve itself.The other is on the stem.If the rivet is not installed in it's hole and the stem with it's seal is backed out past the hole it will leak.You don't need to remove the tank to remove/reinstall the valve.Just empty the tank, disconnect the fuel line and remove the 2 bolts holding the valve.

OK, Thanks. The tractor is 1200 miles away, so I can't look at it. Didn't think there was enough room to remove it with the tank on. I put a new tank on and at least 2 new valves and they still leak. Got to fix it right.
