When I got the farmshed 500, it leaked gas out the carb, and gas poured out of the petcock no matter what the setting. I figured gastank crud had blocked the vacuum diaphragm. Short-term solution was to put a secondary petcock in the line going to the carb, but that's inelegant, so one of my winter projects was to get the vacuum petcock working correctly.

Took it apart yesterday, and I think I now know why it was "leaking":

Thank you previous owner! Rebuild kit now on order :>)
