Has anyone else who has the same tank or whatever uses this same style not thought its about the crappiest was to mount the pepcock? Let me know b/c Im curious how long it lasts before leaking or just plain old falling off. Does the clarke use this method? Thanks for any insight!

It uses the stock petcock with a rubber O-ring that goes around the barrel of the inlet pipe that fits in the opening of the tank. It's not a rubber flange-type gasket. The Clarke does come with a heavy-duty aluminum tank mounting bracket that the stock petcock attaches to then gets bolted to the tank bosses. No leaks and it's sturdy.
For what it's worth, I've had no trouble with either brand of tank (IMS or Clarke) or mounting method.
