Title: C15 petrol tank tap
Post by: stevepoulton on 08 December, 2017, 13:02:02
My tank tap on 1959 C15 is leaking.  In order to get a new tap I need to know the size (preferably without taking it off).  Can anyone help and maybe suggest a source (draganfly have one listed 40-8018 but cannot supply it)?

You could just change the plunger which is what leaks?

Steve
I had lots of problems with leaking original type cork taps.
In the end following advice from the forum I fitted a " BAP TAP "
Can't remember what it stands for but has been fine for 6 months
Supplied by FEXED.COM they have a complete range of taps and fittings
I think I bought tap,reducer and elbow
Main thing is the taps are ethanol proof
Hope this helps
Regards
