I took the kids to school in my M817 and discovered the emergency fuel shut off valve has started leaking around the pivot shaft. It is the old, original style and looks like it may come apart. Does anyone know if it is rebuildable. I was hoping to avoid spending well over $200 for a brass valve if I can get away with putting new O-rings in mine. Thanks in advance everyone!

Use a standard 1/8" pipe valve. Drill a hole in the handle. You need two set screw cable stops. It'll shut it off but has to be reset manually

The original has to be reset manually also so no big deal there. I will try the local (and only hardware store in town) and see what they have for a valve.
