Ransomes Sprite - fuel tap and belt cover

I am working at getting a 2 Stroke Ransomes Sprite into working condition.

Everything is nearly there except the replacement black and yellow plastic fuel tap leaks and I would prefer to fit an original tap. The parts list just notes fuel tap and the drawing shows what could be an Ewarts tap but it is unclear. Could somebody confirm what type of tap was fitted to this mower?

Also I am missing the belt cover, as per photo. I have tried an advert on this site and Jon Cruse in Hailsham but with no luck. Nothing has come up on e bay, and there is little about the Sprite anywhere. Any further suggestions as to where I could look next, or does anyone have a cover they would like to sell? The mower works admirably without the cover but I would like it complete.
