Last fall the fuel selector valve below the panel started to leak on my model 2.

Is there a common model selector used on model 2 s ? Am wondering if its rebuildable or needs to be replaced ?

Reason I ask is that the plane is stored an hour away & would like to do a bit of research on the valve before heading out to take it out of storage.

thanks

Definitely no common valve. Do you have a picture of it?

I have a model IV and if I remember correctly my fuel valve has a small access plate at the fuel selector knob.  And behind this plate is a O ring. I think I may have damaged this O ring by repeated turning the valve on and off during the build process.
