Again Harley-Davidson blazes the way with another engineering triumph - instant gas reserve valve on all 1940 models and interconnected gas tanks on Big Twins. See the knurled cap ahead of the tank filler cap in the picture above. It's a gas control valve that not only shuts off the gas but, what is of vital importance, makes the reserve gas immediately available. Let's suppose you are riding along in traffic, in the dead of night, or anytime or anywhere, and your main gas supply is exhausted. There is no fumbling for a gas cock underneath the tanks - no burned gloves, fingers, or hands as they brush up against sizzling hot cylinders. You simply lift up the control valve rod and your reserve gas rushes on to the carburetor. No stopping - no delay... 1940 February Harley-Davidson Enthusiast Magazine Back-Issue available at CLICK THE PICTURE TO "BUY IT NOW"
