Source of Check Valves?

Postby will » Sun Mar 09, 2008 2:48 pm

Does anyone know of a good supply of reasonably priced check valves for 3/8" fuel line?

Thanks!

Best type of check valves & source

Mcmaster.com has a great selection where you can choose female or male input or outputs and the type of plunger. I couldn't find that flexability anywhere else. My recommendation is to choose the checkvalves with the ball rather than the cylincrical plunger. The ball is a better long term solution (metal on metal) which is less likely to foul up over it's life, and you don't have any worries about seals that wear out (viton or rubber).

Good luck!
