    Question Manual Petcock question...

    Not very technical and maybe it's obvious but if so I'm not seeing it..

    Will someone that knows, or has a Kwick's manual fuel tap, please tell me which is the on/off/reserve position..? It's more of which is on/reserve that I need to know, I could find out the on/off once I have fuel in the tank, by pulling the pipe off. Thank you.

    That is how Petes taps work (and I was wrong so deleted my answer as I am that shallow - although the advice was good )

    i have the technology to operate a fuel tap I must be bright.

    to be honest I prefer the standard tap as my memory’s loco.

    As they age, standard taps are shite John (and you will be more attractive to the opposite sex once they see you have manual fitted )
