RD350 petcock rebuild
« on: November 11, 2020, 11:20:17 PM »





Thanks to John at Economy Cycle for the rebuild kit and fuel lines that actually fit. I also replaced the corroded factory screws with stainless Allen head hardware from Rural King and the unobtainum O rings with a set from a John Deere diesel fuel filter kit. 12 hour leak check dry as a bone and then a 25 mile romp with zero defects noted on the post flight inspection.I also bead blasted the petcock as it was grimy.

I am sorry to say I do not. They were in a box marked John Deere filters that Daddy had.
