This modern replacement valve has 3 positions, ←reserve  on↓ off→. Most original valves were, ↑reserve  off→ on↓ . Original valves with an up position had to be moved away from the bottom of the tank with an extender, to allow the handle to go straight up. Some tanks had a welded-on extender, a short pipe with a 10×1 threaded hole. Some valves had a screw-on extender. On tanks that needed an extender for handle clearance, this modern replacement valve eliminates the need for an extender, by not having an up position.

This valve fits hundreds of mopeds and mini-cycles. It fits any tank with a 10×1 threaded hole, and with nothing below or near the valve that would interfere.

Cimatti Gas Valve

Cimatti with no adapter
(must remove tank)

1978 Cimatti City Bike

Cimatti rear tanks have a 10×1 threaded hole, but there is a nearby “wall” that prevents a 10×1 male valve from screwing in, unless the whole gas tank is removed. That requires rear wheel and rear fender removal. To make gas valve installation easy, Cimatti added a screw-in 10-to-12 adaptor piece, and used a 12×1 female type gas valve, with a turnbuckle type nut. Only the nut turns, and the “wall” does not matter. So it is much better to reuse the 10-to-12 adaptor, and use a 12×1 spigot right valve, see below.

1978 Malaguti Pilot

These “spigot left” valves substitute for a “spigot back” type in many cases. The fuel hose goes left instead of back. Like all screw-on valves, it can be aimed at any angle, so “left” can become “back”.

 

 

 

 

 

These valves fit 1970’s sheet-metal-frame Motobecanes, where there is a tight space.

Like the other 10×1 male valves, the whole valve must turn around and around, to screw on. But the long shaft would usually hit something, that would prevent the valve from screwing on. The original valves had a detachable shaft, held on by a clip. So the valve could be installed or removed without the shaft.

This replacement valve does not have a easily detachable shaft. But the shaft can be removed by loosening the shaft nut. To install the valve, remove the shaft, then screw on the valve, tighten only to a little more than “finger tight”, aim it to face outward or whatever direction is best, then replace the shaft.

Here it is shown without the metal cup and rubber ring, but those things are included. The 15mm length extension includes the cup and rubber.

This 10×1 spigot down valve has a 26mm extender that positions the valve lower, away from the bottom of the tank. The 26mm extender includes a longer reserve tube.

When an extender is added to a valve, the reserve tube needs to be longer. When the reserve tube is too short, there is little or no reserve. Here the original reserve tube has been replaced with a longer one, 60mm from the valve base instead of 35mm.

Any of the other 10×1 male valves can have a 15, 20, or 26mm extender added. Some already have long reserve tubes.

Colombia (tube frame) with 12x1 spigot left mounted sideways close up

Colombia (tube frame)

The original valve on a Columbia Commuter (tube frame) was a vertical mount valve, mounted in the sideways position. So the valve faces up, instead of sideways. That is not bad, but the poor handle gets kicked easily since it is right where you step through the frame at. 

The original valve had a reserve tube that curved upward, like on a Puch side mount. The replacement valve has a short straight reserve tube. Sideways installation disables the reserve feature. Optionally, a longer curved soft aluminum reserve tube is available. See below.

There is a finger width long slot in the right cover, for one-finger access. Many have their gas valve access slots widened, like the blue 1978 above.

Although the spigot direction is wrong, this still works fine on a Vespa Grande. The gas has to go uphill a little at first. This would only matter when nearly empty.

While the Tomos Targa valve works on a Vespa Si, the opposite is not true. The Tomos engine is too close, unless the cover is left off and the valve is rotated.
