C10 petcock filter repair
« on: April 21, 2018, 05:33:24 pm »
So the dog decided to grab 2 brand new petcocks in the boxes and take them outside to play while I went on a ride to scuff the new tires.  One is ok, but the other has damage to the filter.  >:( >:( Any ideas?

Obedience school for the dog and a 3006 for the fuel line.

I was hoping for someone to tell me that the petcock filter could be swapped.  Oh well.....so I got the WIX equivalent to the NAPA FIL3006.  The WIX part number is 33006.  Thanks for the help guys! :great:

I finally got around to pulling the petcock on my bike today.  I decided to see if I could swap filters from the old one to the new one.  I discovered that they can be swapped.  Just a bit of pulling and wiggling and the filter came out.  No damage to the filter.  It is just a press fit that holds it in.  No adhesive was found on either piece.  I had already installed the inline filter, so I guess I'm running double filters now. :motonoises:

Sorry for the lack of a response, I did see this post, but as there isn't a "replacement" for the screen, I let it go once people chimed in about the NAPA thing..
I never used one, but never needed to... the screen did what I wanted... and yes, as you found, it could be "popped out" easily..

By the looks of the "coating" on the reserve tube of your unit, I certainly hope you took the opportunity to dump whatever fuel/water gack mix was in there, and flushed the tank agitating it a couple times, and dumping, before putting it back into service with fresh fuel...looks like it had a bit of soluable rust in there... :truce:
Ride safe,
