I have a 1949 D1 which has decided to let the fuel by the petcock tap. It is the 'slide through' type. Does anybody know where I can get a replacement washer for it and what type I would need?

I would rather get a replacement before draining the tank and taking the tap apart.

 

Thanks.

The flat-slide one...like this?   ** Please log in to view **

If so I didn`t realise the early D1s came with that tap as standard fitment. I must go to see the Paint Doctor(Hans Kreuzen`s) site because I have a Rigid D1 for restoration, but I`ve seen one of those taps in among my spares

Here`s the typical push-pull type fitted to pretty-much all Bantams   ** Please log in to view **

I have one of those taps but with a reserve
and the last time I changed the cork seals it needed two
but cant remember for sure if that was because of the reserve function

Pictures of the dismantled fuel tap from my 1949 D1 for future reference if anybody has the same problem. Both cork washers were rock hard.
