Scored 8 gallon Hoske tank.
No petcocks.
Any suggestions on correct ones and where to purchase?

Twin outlet petcocks is what you want

I'm using two of these http://www.ulismotorradladen.de/uli/Web/shop/Product-Details/Pet_cock_R5...
One outlet goes to carb, t'other to the other petcock to act as the balancer between the two halves of the tank. They're not mirror images so one side has the fuel outlets pointing forward and the other side has them pointing backwards....but who would notice (apart from pedants and OCD sufferers).
