Fuel Supply Valve

The fuel supply valve is located under the fuel tank. Two types are used: type A (1974 & Earlier) and type B (1975 & Later). Both are covered below under separate headings.

TYPE A VALVE (1974 & Earlier) (Figure 3-79)

The valve has two handles: one is marked "reserve" and the other is unmarked. Fuel to carburetor is shut off when both handles are in horizontal position. Turning the unmarked handle to vertical position turns on main fuel supply; turning "reserve" handle to vertical position turns on reserve supply.

If the handle is too loose, add enough .006 in. thick shims, Part No 6160P, to provide only slight clearance when valve is closed.

The fuel strainer is located on top of the supply valve inside the fuel tank. If the supply of fuel is impeded, as indicated by irregular carburetion, remove the supply valve from the tank and thoroughly clean the strainer. Be sure to drain the tank before removing the supply valve.

Before installing supply valve, coat threads with a fuel sealer.
