You can either try replacing it or you will need a new valve which will entail removal of the fuel pump etc from the inside of the fuel tank. This will be the mostly liklely option to get it fixed so it does not leak.

Can I replace the quick connect gas line with a petcock on my 2007 super glide

but the quick release is for easy tank removal
the leak from the connection will be a failed "O" ring that will be replaceable or it may be easier just to get a new connection

Gas tank reserve valve

Recently, my quick disconnect started to leak...leak pretty profusely actually. Anyway, the Harley dealership tried to sell me an entire new quick disconnect. I insisted that there had to be an o-ring inside the disconnect, but the parts guy swore that there was not. After refusing to spend $58 on a new disconnect, I drained the fuel from the tank, removed the disconnect, and removed the cracked o-ring (the one that the parts guy said did not exist). A quick trip to the local parts store and I found the o-ring for under $1.
Just be sure to ask for one that is fuel resistant.

if I remember correctly, it's the same size o-ring as the oil drainplugs...a #41 I think.

$6.99 for the HELP o-ring kit at your local Advance Auto Parts has the o-ring you fuel grade too.

All Pro patio heater modle SPC54PHW, PHB, PHT, PHS. Pilot will not light and burner will not light.I installed a new regulatoe, propane tank is full. Took the gas pipes apart from bottom to top and no...

If your propane tank has an OPD valve.. in other words if when the tank is disconnected and you open the tank valve and no gas's an OPD valve..these are pretty much standard especially on the exchangeable tanks.

The problem sometimes is at the connection too of course must be an OPD connector to depress the internal ring on the tank valve before any gas will come out.

Chances are the knurled knob is either cross threading or is cracked..and won't snug up enough to depress that internal ring on the tank valve. Or you have miss matched components.. unlikely if you bought genuine replacement parts.

The All Pro Heater you have requires a specific part (fitting) to be added when using a universal regulator (Part number 6122) which is a 3/8 connector male.

This of course is assuming you hear no gas hissing.. cannot light it manually..

Sounds simple..but I have seen this problem on outdoor BB'Q's many times.. cracked knob on the connector hose and a few times simply backing it off and putting it back on.. tight enough to depress that ring..

Best of luck!

I found oil on 2 spark plugs telling me the head gasket is blown. Ive never replaced one before what can you tell me?

Oil on the plug does not indicate a head gasket.
It could be a bad ring, valve guide or valve seal.
A leak down test will comfirm a head gasket leak
A compresion test will confirm a ring problem.
Oil consumption and smoke indicate ring and valve problems.
If it smokes on stat up, most likely valve guide or seal.
If if smokes when you drive and let off the gas quickly from speed, then most likely a ring or cylinder wall problem.

Good Luck
