I’m sure this has been commented on before but do these motor require the use of the Vacuum assisted petcock ? , or will a standard petcock be fine ?

Manual petcocks are fine, just block the vacuum port.

and remember to turn petcock off when parked over-night & then back on.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.
Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated”
