    Removed the gas tank to get to carbs and when I lifted the tank off I heard the screw in there rattling around.

    Sweet. Don't you love it when that shit happens?

    BTW, how do the plugs look, just out of curiosity?


    Alcohol, Tobbaco and Firearms should be a convenience store, not a government agency.

    New. The white part is still white with just a tiny bit of carbon on the threads. I have about 200 miles on the plugs.

    I'm surprised that the screw would be the problem. Most petcocks have screens going up into the gas tank to keep debris from getting into the petcock itself. But hey if that was the culprit, that's great!!! Ya learn something every day...

    Maybe the screw was just stuck in the "neck" giong to the petcock, not actually in the petcock itself.
