Need replacement 40440 petcock.

Somehow or another I seem to have lost the petcock on my 40400 compressor tank. Do I need to use an OEM part, or can I replace with a ball valve of some sort?

40440 tank drain

No, and yes.

In fact, if you thread a 90 elbow into the tank port, and run a poly line out to the side, and put the ball valve there, it makes draining the tank easier and the protruding ball valve is a reminder to do so.
