Re: LT2000 only goes a few months without flooding.
Maybe get a vacuum operated petcock valve?? They are used regularly on Chinese scooters and get the job done. No(hopefully) fuel will flow from the tank until there's enough vacuum to operate the diaphragm and open the valve. They are cheap, too.
Some mount to the tank and some are 'free floating' to mount anywhere you desire(complete and entire valve separate from the tank).
OTOH, it seems someone needs to enforce the rule that if you choose to not learn, you will pay, again and again. No pain, no gain?
I had a leaky float valve, and it leaked all over the mower, onto the garage floor.
I got a shutoff and use it religiously. I don't want a garage fire. Not good.
simplificate & add lightness
It's not how hard you work, it's how much you get done.
