Since a CQ lamp has a straight pick up with no F/A tube ,the valve is either on or off with no real metering? The generator office is only allowing so much fuel into the mixing chamber. So my question is would a 1/8npt valve work as a replacement ,I've been building some Frank's lately ,could not find much in my search of the archives as far as this question relate.
Thanks in advance

I'll ask, is the original defective? What are wanting to accomplish? Genny tip can be replaced.

No I guess just a question that popped into my head , the valve does not hold 100% but I need to give it a soak in some carb cleaner , but I could put the valves in line of each other so I did have a positive shutoff and then be able to put the genny in

Generator is new , I guess I was asking if the genny tip on a straight pick up is what meters the amount of fuel being dispersed,

Genny tip has the final say, that effects output. That would be a different frankie, two valves.

When I was in my "Franken' phase" a couple of years ago, I tried to find valves with 1/8 NPT threads, that could be used for CQ fount-based projects. Maybe my Google-Fu was not strong enough, but I couldn't find much, except very expensive models used in laboratories and chemical manufacturing.

Google-fu works. Ball valves are better than gate valves.

I like the looks of this one better:

         

But I'd worry about the valve handle getting too hot to touch. CQ valve wheels get pretty warm, and they stick out a ways from the valve.
