fuel change over valve

I have 2 tanks to go under my floor. One being twice the size as the other. I am going to use the smaller tank as a reserve, but as my motor is a large Mariner it doesn't have a fuel conector (the fuel pipe goes straight on to the engine). What I am after is a change over switch to go from main to reserve if I need to without the need to disconect the fuel line from the engine.

Anyone know of any inline fittings with a selector tape, to select main tank, reserve tank, fuel off? or any other sugestions.

change over

Obtain a three way brass/bronze/stainless cock from your nearest chandlers with a bore to suit your fuel lines,sometimes known as a T valve.put some hose tails on,mount it where ever, and plumb in. You can even mount it so as only the lever of the valve/cock is showing.hope that helps

main tank ---------------[-----:-----]-------------res tank-----

Nip into your local chandler and ask them to order this from Aqua Marine.
