I just got a 1976 Honda CB200T so drainyoo maybe you can help me out here. The bike is not running right now but I took the tank off to get some work done and while it was off I figured that I'd put some gas in it just to see if leaked and of course it did. Its leaking around the rubber gasket for the petcock. Also the gasket is not right it looks like someone just cut up a piece of rubber and threw it on there. The thing is I don't know how to get the petcock off to fix it. The clymer book doesn't have anything for this. I could try but I don't want to break this thing taking it off so I need some help here. Also the guy I got it from put some of that tank sealer in the tank and I think it clogged up the petcock because no fuel even came out of the outlets.

I have some other questions as well. The carbs on this bike are mounted on studs from the block but one studs I guess broke so who ever had it tried to drill a new hole and ended up just jacking the hole thing up. So now there is an oblong hole with no threads in my block. What would be the best way to fix this?

Sorry for the lenght but this is my first bike and I really want to get it running so I can ride it. Anyhelp would be great.
