vacuum fuel tap on Scrambler

I replaced the original sticky Triumph fuel tap (sometimes required pliers to operate) with the dug's ba's of petrol taps, the Pingel. I had trouble with that leaking fuel out of the seal past the spindle (it's been returned for inspection) trouble was I had so much faith in it I binned the smelly Triumph one which put me off the road for a couple of days.

Anyhow, to the point. 'Slinky' on the classic triples forum replaced his dodgy tap some time ago with a Kawasaki one, today I did the same. Got a Kawasaki tap from a breaker for a fiver :)

that valve looks like the one on the yamaha xs650, they call it a whizzer valve. rebuild parts available from mikes xs. you will have to put on a vacuum line on it to make it work.
