I put on a carburetor fuel valve https://www.modeltford.com/item/6055RE.aspx but don't remember which position is 'on' and off. Does anyone know? It has the small size that goes to the carburetor and the large size that goes to the fuel tank. I think that the handle pointing at the fuel tank is on and any other position is off.
Right. And you need to have at least 2 gallons in the tank. Less than that is empty as far as I am concerned. To have decent flow at the carb you want 3+ gallons.
I believe that when the handle is in line with the gas line, the valve is open.
Jerry is correct.
That is funny Royce - I learned this the hard way!
I agree with Royce. That's why I wouldn't be without the accessories on the front of my running board. They've already saved me one long walk.
These shut-off valves can serve more than one purpose. When I was a kid my grandfather used a Caterpillar Two Ton crawler to tend his orchard. There was no "on/off" switch. When he was finished with it the only way to turn it off was to turn the gas valve off and let it burn the carburetor dry.
Like said above. Pointing towards the fuel tank is ON? Right on. :-)
I was gonna say the open handle usually follows the fuel line, but that is not the case on the sediment bowl as the line comes out the side, but the handle is in the down position to allow fuel to flow.
On the carb shut off, it does point in the direction of both the fuel line and towards the rear of the vehicle, or the fuel tank.
