My CX doesn't have any labeling on the petcock. I believe it is a vacuum petcock, has two lines attached to it--what are the control positions? I'm assuming handle up is on, middle is Pri, and down is reserve.

I think Middle would be off

down would be reserve, prime

up would be on.



Others may correct me ............



peace

I think the tricky thing here is that when the lever is up, the arrow on the lever points down.

Yup thats how mine work .....lever down, arrow is up and fuel is on, vise versa, fuel is off. And like most valves/levers



when across the line it is off.
