Hi Ian,
          I cut and use 1.5mm Gore GR gasket on my A65 primary and rocker cover. Thinner for elsewhere there's nothing better....

Best wishes...

Hi Adam,
              The best option is no doubt use a modern fuel tap, I have done so and by the posts many others have.

As Julian mentioned ethanol is a powerful solvent that, without a suitable additive, attacks many fuel system components including zinc and galvanised materials, brass, copper, aluminium, seals and hoses, cork, polyurethane and epoxy resins. In other words, almost everything used in a vehicle made more than about 20 years ago.

If you are trying to keep the original taps, replacement cork plungers. Or keep the external original taps modernising the seal material, you can have the plungers modified with a row of Viton 'O rings' in place of the cork.

Best wishes...

Hi Andy,
            I agree with Julian.

Plus you might notice a clunk sound when applying/releasing the clutch and during acceleration or deceleration.

Hi Adam,
               Fuel Tap Plungers, may solve your problem at a reasonable cost...

     Good news.

Usual issues are - When fitting the springs the spring prongs should cross over. There are 2 different return springs your year is the 68-3125, earlier models is the 68-3084 - may make a difference, as would cheap reproductions.

Hi Roger,
              I have issues with parts from f...d, they have refunded me but I had to phone twice to remind them. I to have wasted money in the past with different suppliers, especially engine parts. In my experience SRM parts and service have been the best, they have been worth the extra money I've paid.

    Have you considered purchasing silver steel of the correct diameter, cut to length and harden the ends yourself. It saves all the heartache of suppliers providing the wrong item...

      I've experienced the same on the Draganfly site. If a part isn't listed a search by part number sometimes reveals their stock.

Best wishes and good luck with the build, here's one I prepared earlier....

Hi Julian,
               Thanks, seems a bit of fiddling on the cards.

I hope that's not from your bike? ;)

Best wishes...
