I put my trust in those petcocks for my 2-stroke motors, I realize this one's been in that moped for a year. Pretty sure sediment got in there and messed up the gasket.
All good and a pretty cheap fix.
as always, thank you for all who help out here. There's not many of us to bounce information into or off of for this kind of thing.
Most people see me riding and they look at me funny cuz they don't know what the hell they're looking at. Hahahahaha
