Any one have advice on weather to replace an old leaking from every gasket tank valve (petcock) with a cheap New Chinese whole assembly or buy an oem $50 gasket kit?
You may be able to replace the vacuum-controlled OEM unit with a Yamaha manual unit (many XTs and TTs used this) and many times this is doable regardless of displacement. You will need to either take your old one to a dealer to compare the mounting base, or measure and search, or maybe someone else has done this already. OEM quality is always preferable.

Have bought one of these before and the quality was great.  Same hole centres, good price.  I just think it was missing the base o-ring. 

Then you would just have to cap off your vacuum feed on the intake boot.
