Looking for a new gas line valve for a G

My shutoff valve ( the one under the fuel tank ) leaks thru the bonnet (down the stem )and I cannot tighten the stem nut any further. It only leaks when the valve is open. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement valve ? Sandylake says they are no longer available from AGCO.Would it work to remove the valve and splice a piece of rubber gas line hose across the opening and then replace the strainer bowl with one with a shutoff valve? Thanks for your opinion.

I had the same problem...with the same results...could not get the same valve. I did not want to redo the fuel line. Since I had the tank off, etc, I went around town looking for a vlave that would substitute for it. At our local lumberyard (where we to a lot of business since we are in the construction business) I took a dare and unscrewed the guts from a simular size shutoff and tried it on mine. Worked like a top. I would not believe a current valve guts would fit a 50 year old valve...but I guess if it worked then it should work now. This was a cheap fix to my problem...maybe yours also.

I think you can repack the stem of the valve by removing the compression nut and installing an "o" ring. I have made the valve more accessable by moving it to the other end of the gas line near the carburetor. Good luck, Ed
