Fuel Reserve Valve - How to fix the leak.

Hi,
The part of the fuel reserve valve that leaks, of course, is the part
that Hugh doesn't sell. It looks like a disk with some holes in it.
It flattens out, over time, and no longer seals correctly. I was able
to track them down though and had my local German car mechanic order a
bunch in for me from a place that deals in those old style parts.
Hugh said something about a couple of different disk sizes used but
the ones I have fit the two different fuel shut valves that I have
seen. It's easy to replace but you do have to remove the valve from
the bottom of the tank. Email me off line, if you'd like one, and I
can get one for you. Figure $20, delivered.
