We just received the FWF kit with the ULpower 350 engine from Zenith.
The fuel tank selector provided is a duplex (return lines) electric model. The switch has two positions, tank one and tank two. There is no "off" position.
I'm used to a "hand" fuel selector valve, has anyone installed and operated an electrical fuel valve in their home build?
Thanks for your advice.
I have that electric selector switch in my Cruzer. Works fine. I did wire indicator LED's to show which tank is being used.
I have used the same electric switch from cheve/gmc pickups/suburbans with 2 tanks.Dont know current price, but
last one I bought was around $100
Thanks, Tom, The fuel selector is automotive, the installation manual indicates that it should not be used for marine or aviation purposes. I checked the VANairforce forum, no mention of any build using a Pollak electric fuel selector.
Thanks, Perry, I appreciate your feedback. My concern is a single point of failure in case the solenoid circuit fails.
