Thanks for the Harbor Freight suggestion. I will test out the battery tomorrow with that 22 dollar on sale loader.

That bracket looks like it was overstressed (obvious).  Did you tighten one side then the side that broke?

Correct.
Harbor Freight sells a cheap load tester if you want to try that before you buy a battery.
But buy a battery you will.

You've got to have the battery tested under load to tell if it is good or not.  A reading of 12 volts means nothing.

The battery is ok, I charged it again and its full. Still the same situation. Wonder if its a bad alternator.

Hobo, I picked a generic online fuel petcock at Napa Auto parts in the small engine parts area. Mainly used on lawnmower engines.
As far as removing the vacuum one from the fuel tank, I removed the tank and then the valve ( it will unthread from the bottom), then I purchased a 1/4" barbed fitting which has a male thread at one end. I ran a thread cutting tap into the hole at the bottom of the tank and screwed in the barb fitting. Then ran the fuel hose back to the carb. I installed the new petcock near the factory fuel filter so that I can access it with the side cover in place. I did post some pictures a while back. Maybe search through my threads to find them. I'm off to work right now so I won't be able to post any pics until tonight

Scoot batteries are awful. They fail often. If you don't keep the scoot on a tender when not riding, you will have the battery fail.

Haven't seen that one off the top of my head.
 Does that mount under the handlebar where the U.S. version has it's blinker stalks attached, or to the mirror mounts?

Yeah, that's all quite helpful, thanks Peter. Especially the bit about an engine that has sat for awhile drying out the rings, resulting in a low compression reading.

Question: what kind of petcock did you replace the vacuum one with? I know you said a manual one, but is there a specific make/model you can recall? Did you pull the vacuum one completely?
