No problem, Kelly... sharing and solutions is what we're all here for.  BTW, the valves that I ordered are their part number 3156.  It's a hard anodized aluminum housing with -6 AN flares, looks just like a check valve.  Difference is that check valves typically have cracking pressures from .5 to 2 psi... this one opens at 50psi (to work with an EFI system that operates at 45.)  You can find it three items down the middle column at the top of page 35M in their online catalog (better to download their complete PDF catalog, only about 7mb and pretty quick on broadband).  They've got _WAY_ too many cool things for EFI to not include them in one's list of resources.


PS... if you'd like to see the fuel system schematic I'm attaching a copy of the DXF file for those of you who have some kind of cad capability...   Need to get out to the airport and find out why the gearbox oil pressure was indicating zippo at the end of yesterday afternoon's run.  Taxied the IVP around Deland airport a bit late yesterday afternoon... woo-hoo, wish it were mine.

 Thanks Marv,
      That is just what I needed to solve the problem of  mounting
 my fuel valve in front of the EFI pumps so I can reach it without
 a remote shaft !

Hey guys, I just found another source for injection components, called Kinsler Fuel Injection, Inc, up in Troy, MI. Great folks to work with. I needed a pair of bypass valves to plumb in between the pumps and fuel selector that allow you to turn on the pump on the tank you're switching to but bypass that flow just in front of the fuel selector until the selector is switched to that tank. They have a "secondary bypass valve" with a 50psi setpoint (cracking pressure) that's perfect for the job. See their online catalog at FWIW >> Homepage: >> Archive:
