I went the the entire process of replacing a fuel petcock only to notice when I went to put the fuel line back on, the nipple was only about 1/4" (6mm). The old one, and my hose is closer to 8mm (a bit less than 3/8"). All the parts online that do give measurements, show the smaller nipple. Anyone know how to find a decent part? The $9 ones also seem to be stiff and turn roughly, like the metal is not smooth. Thank you.

I just replaced mine about 2 months ago with one from Amazon. The port tubes were reversed, but it works properly, and isn't leaking like the old one.
