A first version but it works!  just some aluminum I had laying around.
I'm thinking if I do a mark2 it will have more of a U shaped handle. turning back up alongside the tank.

I'm guessing it's for the 89 and newer petcock that the fuel pump models have. It has a square peg this would fit.

I use an open end wrench on my '89 petcock. Works great!

10mm? I thought it was 8mm.
The glass is not half full, it was engineered with a 2X safety factor.

How can you tell its been ages since the tank was off my FJ LOL....YES 8mm open ender

Tank and fairing will be off over the next few weeks as i strip off an ancient and annoying alarm as well as fitting the new front end and powder coated  fairing bracket. Depending how that mission goes i,may just plough into the swing arm swap as well...we shall see.

Only the left side cover has to come off to access the petcock with the open end of a standard 8mm.
