I took the filter apart cleaned it then put it back together now the adjustment arm that opens and closes flow of gas instead of turning down for open and up to close mine goes always around is there an adjustment or a certain way to put it back together.
Mine completely spins around too on my 26. They changed the handle with the Model A so it only does a quarter turn.
Thanks Tom Mine leaks or drips constantly
The packing nut can be tightened if the leak is dripping from the valve shaft. You can also buy more packing material from the usual suppliers.
I also used the fuel proof grease when I rebuilt mine. No drips and it turns easily.
I have two of them. Stock units. All spin 360 degrees. One points down for off and up for closing. The other points to the engine for open and 180 degrees for closing. If it drips all the time it probably needs the valve stem cleaned and lapped in the iron body. Use some Easyturn on the valve stem and tighten the packing nut. Generally that's all it takes.
I used Permatex fuel resistant sealant. It works very well in stopping leaks.
EZ Lube works very well to stop the drip and let it turn.
