I took apart the petcock, punched a hole in the vacuum diaphragm, put it back together, and
capped off the vac nipple in back and the one on the carb. Free full flow unit. Starts immediately

Labor: 10-12 minutes.
Ya have to turn it on and off like the old days when we had to pay attention. Before clutch switches, neutral

Those retaining the stock setup carry some electrical tape in their
kits for vac-leaks out in the bush country or traveling.
