Now suppose it seems to be stuck fast n the off position, do I go clockwise or counter clockwise after soaking it in penetrating oil?

Mine goes 360 either direction. 90 from full open to completely closed.

Mine works both ways also but seems to seal better when turned outwards 90 deg.

Be really careful Tim, if you force it the brass stem will break off. If it is stuck fast it is best to take off the small nut and lever then the pack nut and put the lever back on and try it EASY. If that doesn't work remove the sediment bowl from the gas tank and tap the brass stem out from the inside threaded end. You can ruin those fast and I have done it.

Another way to break them is by pulling the screen out and trying to pry in the opening to back it out of the gas tank with a bar...that will break the thin casting. Use a pipe wrench at the inlet of the gas tank.

Everything can go bad fast on those when they are stuck if you try to force anything. Good luck and go easy on it!

If you try what Tim said, be sure the tank is empty or that you have something under the car to catch up to 9 gallons of gas. The bulb should only be removed when the tank is empty.

All of the shut off valves that I have seen have only one drilled hole in the tapered plug section and hence fuel only flows down to the carby (carburettor) when in one position only. Every other position it's a dead end! My valve is permantly in this position as I have every faith In the soft seated needle valve in the carby ( plus an additional modern brass inline valve) !!!!!

If you leave the lever on and back the packing nut out against the lever, that should break the valve loose. I believe the originals had a spring in them between the packing nut and valve which kept tension on the valve without making it stick. Repop kits do not have that spring.
