CA50 Fuel Petcock Rebuild

Post by Ethan140 »

So the previous owner has put rtv allover the outside of the petcock on the bottom of the tank because it was leaking, and still was leaking, along with the 2 vacuum lines being switched around, so i took off the petcock to reseal it correctly. i was originally going to use fuel safe rtv, but looking into it i was confused because i thought there was supposed to be a diaphragm inside. I have posted before and after pictures, and yes, it did run with all the gunk in there, my question is weather or not there is supposed to be a diaphragm. I have also added a screenshot of a youtube video that i will link, showing a kind of similar pump, that looks identical on the inside, but different from the outside that might be useful

ANY info would be great, Thanks
