Gas On/Off

Has happened a few times. I load my Honda on trailer to haul to camp and turned gas to off. When I unload Honda and turn on gas, it spits and sputters like it has water in line. Finally settles down with no problem. Did it again a few days ago and now it doesn't start or run when it is turned on but when I move gas to reserve, it runs just fine. I switch back to normal gas position, it runs for a while (clears carburator) and then dies again and will not start. Acts like gas line is plugged or the gas position knob or valve is bad. Like I said, it has done it before and eventually quit, but this time it doesn't quit. Since it worked fine when I turned to off, and now doesn't run when knob is in normal mode, woudn't think gas line is plugged and works fine on reserve which is first time I ever used reserve and would think this would be first thing to plug. Could this be valve instead? Anybody else same problem in past???

I would say there's something in the petcock (sp) or it's gone bad.
turn off the gas, pull the fuel hose off the carb, turn the carb to the on position to see if any gas comes out, then to the reserve. It is pretty easy to take out the petcock, but those stupid things are like $60-$80.
