Refurbished GTR petrol cock.
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: This GTR petrol cock had suffered with age, the original brass tubes had split and the mesh filters disintegrated. Firstly I cleaned the tap using an ultrasonic bath.
I replaced the tubes and fitted new nylon mesh filters, all secured by an epoxy type bond, this was then painted over with POR-15 to protect against the petrol.

I take it you went this route because it was maybe less hassle than reproducing the brass screens like you did previously?

Yes Bert, that's how I did it.
I made the small one first then fitted it and applied a small amount of the epoxy type bond to secure it's location, the following day when it had fully cured  I made the longer one and fitted that. I then filled the base sub flush and let that cure.
Then I gave all the joints a generous coat of POR-15.

So what appears to be a metal collar holding the filter on the longer tube is, in fact, Epoxy coated with POR? Clever! (Can't see the shorter tube as well, but expect it is the same trick, right?)

To remove the old brass tubes I used a Dremell with a small rotary burr fitted,the material surrounding the pipes is lead so I could easily remove most of the lead supporting the pipes before I could pull them out.
If you go down this route don't remove too much lead as you need the original holes to locate the new brass tube.
I got the brass tube from a model maker on eBay, I also got the nylon petrol filters off eBay.

How did you get the old brass tubes out?
