Thanks for all the help with the CB550 Tank question I posted awhile back. things here have kinda gotten back to normal ( whatever that is ). I ended up putting a tank from a 1975 CB750K on my CB550. Only had to trim about half an inch from the seat pan, no sweat !. The question is about petcock clearance, The petcock is an aftermarket chrome one from eBay. It is about 3/4 inch from the valve cover, is there going to be an issue over heat ? Seems kinda close to me, but I am far from being an expert !. Opinions ?. Thanks for your time

3/4 Inch seems like enough clearance as long as you are not risking the fuel line actually touching the valve covers.
Fuel lines clear quite well, was just concerned about a hot petcock ( that didnt sound right )
