Petcok removal
« on: 20.10. 2012 23:43 »
Need to strip all the paint from my gas tank as well as remove the rubber parts and the petcocks.  What is the petcock thread pattern/direction?  Can a wrench be put on the petcocks and carefully turned in the correct direction to remove them?

Thanks,

Steve

on my '61 A7 its a right hand 1/4" BSP (British Standard Pipe) thread - with a spanner/wrench it should unscrew easily.
