I've posted about my leaking petcock, I think I have figured out the issue, I think it's machined wrong internally. When It's shut off it seems to be "off" however if I turn it to the left or right of off, if I turn it all the way to the stop the valve seems to leak, however if I just turn it to the left or the right of off half way to the stop, no leak. I think that's very odd. Anyone every hear of this before?

Yes, happens when I wrench it by the valve and not with the right wrench.

Ends up wacky every time.

Quit doing that or it will break. Just get a new one now, it's already broken. Probably why.

Unless it's an odd thing, I just use it in the on position 24\7 and remove the choke.
