ok, I think I figured out the reason for a bit of confusion (on my part anyway).....

Outlined in RED in the pic below, the entire bottom portion of the Golan rotates (not just the lever alone).

After I fitted my new Pingel the lever would move about on it’s own while riding and turn the fuel off randomly, after about a week I decided I would take it off but it suddenly started to play ball.

Fuel inlet to rear? Install inlet fitting pointing straight up and use a left exit Pingle...this will allow you to run a 5" fuel line to carb that does not loop around bottom of carb.....just like a stock 1977 with stock Keihin

Found this Dapco tap in the parts stash, seems nice so going to give this a try before shelling out....can practically hear eyeballs rolling from here...got to be better than the trickle Im getting now.

It’s 1/4NPT so bought an adaptor...might lose some reserve.
