You are purchasing one great USA made reproduction of the 3601-16 fuel valve or gas petcock as used from 1916 to 1939 on all twin and single models except for 1937 to 1939 W & WL models.  Note that this does not have a reserve provision and the finish is cadmium, which was correct for 1938 and up.  This was used on all fuel tanks for JD, Sport Twin, Single, 45" solo, Servicar, and VL models from 1916 though 1936, the finish on those was nickel and those will be back in stock shortly.  

These are 100% made in the USA.  We sold ones made off-shore and after a couple of customers reported leakage on a newly installed valve we quit selling them.  They are easy to spot on eBay, they sell for around $85, are zinc plated and you don't want that one.  This was never a great valve design by H-D to start with and most eventually will weep from years of use, when that happens, take the valve apart, lap it and re-install it.

It was also used as the right tank petcock for 1936-1939 EL OHV models and 1937-1939 UL models and we do sell it as a kit with a USA-made 3601-36 left tank petcock for your UL or EL model.

Correctly cadmium plated finish over a brass body.  We sell these in nickel and sell them as a pair with the left petcock for 1936-1939 Knucklehead and UL models.
