Question about Coleman Powermate Powermate 5000W Generator
Can't find anyway to tighten it.Or remove it. How is that accomplished? Not the shut off valve, the valve that connects the fuel tank to the 1/4"hose leading to the shutoff. Valve connects to the bottom of the plastic fuel tank

Turn the handle of the fuel valve to OFF, THEN using a side cutters, cut clamp and remove hose from fuel outlet fitting at the front of the fuel valve and drain the free end of hose into a suitable container, THEN remove the elbow of the intake manifold vacuum tube from its fitting on the inboard side of the fuel valve, attach a length of fuel hose long enough to reach a suitable gasoline container to the fuel outlet fitting, turn the handle of the fuel valve to RES(ERVE), THEN using the correct hose adapter, connect the Mity-Vac® Hand Pump (HD-23738A) or similar to the vacuum fitting (To avoid damage to the diaphragm of the fuel valve, do not apply a vacuum greater than 25 inches of Mercury(Hg) to the vacuum fitting.), gently apply a vacuum of 1-10 inches of Mercury (Hg) to the vacuum fitting to get a good flow of gasoline through the valve, when the fuel tank is completely empty remove the vacuum pump from the vacuum fitting, THEN holding the fuel tank adapter, turn the hex jam nut in a clockwise direction to remove the fuel valve assembly, remove the fuel filter strainer from the valve head, remove the hex jam nut from the fuel valve and remove and discard the gasket from the valve head.
FUEL VALVE Installation
Attach the fuel supply valve assembly to the tank by threading the hex fitting on the right hand threads of the fuel tank two turns (the collar on the hex fitting faces the fuel tank), holding the hex fitting and thread body of the fuel supply valve assembly into the left hand threads of the hex fitting two turns, hold the fuel supply valve assembly so that the handle points to the left, straight away from the motorcycle, tighten the hex fitting (clockwise) to 15-20 ft-lbs (20.3-27.1 Nm), connect the fuel hose to the outlet nipple on the fuel supply valve assembly using a new clamp and HOSE CLAMP PLIERS, connect the vacuum hose to the vacuum nipple and the fill tank with gasoline, check for leaks at the fitting, turn the fuel supply valve handle ON and start the engine. No special procedures are required to start the fuel flow, carefully inspect for leaks and then turn the fuel supply valve OFF and shut off the engine after the inspection is complete.

Disconnect the negative battery cable. Slowly loosen the fuel cap to relieve the vapor pressure in the fuel tank. Connect a pressure gauge to the fuel pressure valve while you wrap a shop towel around the fuel pressure valve.
Put the gauge's bleed hose into a container for holding the fuel. Bleed the system pressure by opening the gauge valve. There may be fuel that remains in the gauge so drain that into the container as well.
Remove the quick-connect fitting at the inlet end of the filter, and then remove the threaded fitting at the outlet end. Be ready to catch any fuel that may leak out during this process. Take the filter out of the mounting bracket.
Place the fuel filter into the mounting bracket and tighten the bolt to 15 ft-lbs. Connect the quick-connect fitting to the inlet end of the filter, and then connect the threaded fitting to the outlet end of the filter. With a backup wrench, tighten the nut to 22 ft-lbs.
Reconnect the negative battery cable. Restore pressure to the fuel system by turning the ignition on for 2 seconds. Then, turn it off for 10 seconds. Turn it on again and check for leaks. Turn it off and do the same.
