Husky petcock Notes -
The large tank nut on this type petcock is a combination lefthand/righthand thread style, so understanding how it is intended to function can keep you from ruining it.
1) The petcock nut is taken off, everything carefully cleaned with a toothbrush and solvent, left hand nut threads are trialed on top of petcock, then taken off.
2) Fit a new SEALING gasket to top of petcock (it just drops right in), thread petcock nut (lefthand) on the petcock about 2 threads.
3) Hold nut up to tank connection (righthand) and thread nut onto tank while holding petcock from rotating. As you tighten up the thread at the tank connection, the left hand will draw up the petcock.
After just a fews turns the gasket will be nicely seating and you should tighten this finally to a moderate torque. Do not overtighten this connection. Do not use any sealants or locktite.
Take your petcock off and clean the screens and inlet area on a regular basis.
