How do I correctly set the Fuel Supply valve

The fuel supply to the carburetor is turned off when the handle is in the horizontal position. Turning the handle up to the vertical position turns on the main supply. Turning the handle down to the vertical position turns on the reserve supply. The valve is vacuum-operated

and will open and close when the engine is turned ON or OFF. The fuel supply valve should be turned off when the engine is not running. If the fuel supply valve is not turned off when the engine is not running, it is possible for fuel to drain into the engine, dilute the engine oil and cause engine damage. The fuel supply to the carburetor is controlled by the valve handle positions and an internal vacuum operated valve. No fuel will flow through the valve until the following conditions are met: the handle must be in ON or RES position; a vacuum of approximately 0.5-1.0 in. (12.7-25.4 mm) of

Mercury (Hg) must be applied to the vacuum nipple.

Harley fuel valve diagram

The fuel supply valve is a vacuum operated valve under the left side of the fuel tank and it delivers fuel to the carburetor when the handle is turned so it is pointing up in the vertical position (ON) and vacuum is supplied to it from the carburetor. The fuel supply is turned OFF when the handle is in the horizontal position and when no vacuum is supplied to the valve from the carburetor. There is a RESERVE fuel supply and it is operational when the handle is turned to point down. IT SHOULD BE TURNED OFF when the engine is not running because if it is not it is possible for fuel to drain into the engine, dilute the engine oil and
cause engine damage.

What is the rollover valve in the fuel tank in a 2003 pontiac grand am ?

Provided from Eaton Automotive."A Roll-Over Valve is a safety device that hinders fuel leakage in the instance of a vehicle roll over. A patented "peel away" float seal provides excellent "decork" characteristics. The float seal is tolerant to horizontal and vertical movement and has superior liquid discrimination exceeding industry standards of 2ccm. The Eaton Rollover Valve can be incorporated into multiple tank interfaces including: cam lock, hot plate welded "sandwich" mount, grommet mount and internal fuel sender mount."

Hope that helps

My Weber Summit Grill is new. Works fine with new LP tank. When tank is half full grill lights but does not heat very high. Have had this problem with multiple LP tanks.

The overfill protection device in LP tanks will cause this problem if you open valve quickly. Try closing the valve on tank, unscrewing the tank grill regulator to relieve pressure from hose and then screw it back on. Open valve on tank very slowly then open the burner farthest away from tank first to light. then light the remaining burners while working your way towards the tank side. This has fixed my problem of low heat several times but that is also caused when tank is getting low so make sure you do have propane in the tank. for a 20 lb tank, and empty tank is 17.5 lbs so a full one would weigh 37.5 lbs.

I've found the fuel shutoff valve. How can I tell if it is opened or closed? Is it vertical or horizontal if it is closed?

Usually, the fuel shutoff valve is open in the vertical position and closed when horizontal...very similar to a gate when handle is parallel to piping and closed when perpendicular to plumbing pipes.

How do you ajust head light aim on a ford f-150 2008 truck?

NOTE: Horizontal aim is not necessary for VOL or VOR headlamps.
NOTE: Consult your state vehicle inspection manual for recommended tolerance ranges for visual aiming.
NOTE: The sight shield may need to be positioned or removed for access to the adjusters.
  1. Before starting headlamp adjustment:
    • check the tire inflation.
    • check that no other load is in the vehicle other than a half tank of fuel.
    • check that the headlamps are clean.
    • check for correct headlamp operation.
    • check that the vehicle is on level ground.
    • if the vehicle is equipped with air suspension, make sure that the switch is on.
  1. NOTE: The vertical wall or screen must be a minimum of 2.4 m (8 ft) wide.
    Park the vehicle on a level surface approximately 7.6 m (25 ft) from the vertical wall or screen directly in front of it.
  1. NOTE: The center of the lamp is marked either on the lens (circle, crosshair or other mark) or on the bulb shield integrated into the lamp (crosshair or other mark).
    Mark a horizontal reference line on the vertical wall or screen.
    1. Measure the center of the headlamp height to ground and record the measurement.
    1. Make a 2.4 m (8 ft) horizontal mark (using masking tape) on the vertical wall or screen at the same distance from the ground as previously recorded.
  1. NOTE: This procedure should be done in a dark environment to effectively see the headlamp beam pattern.
    Turn on the low beam headlamps to illuminate the wall or screen and open the hood.
  1. On the wall or screen, locate the high intensity area of the beam pattern.
VOR-type headlamps
  1. NOTE: The appearance of the VOR beam pattern may vary between vehicles.
    Identify at the top edge of this high intensity area a distinct horizontal cutoff in the beam pattern. If the top edge of this cutoff is not even with the horizontal reference line, the headlamp beam needs to be adjusted using the headlamp adjusting screw.

My refilled 60 # propane tank leaked and then stopped flowing.

Rick, if the tank is normally plumbed for a horizontal position, and you have it standing vertically, then you are feeding liquid propane to your pilot light, hence the frosted hose etc., and a tendency for the pilot light to go out as it has too rich of a fuel to burn. There should be no vent to allow air in as propane is pressurized, and only attains zero pressure at 40 below zero farenheit. The valve you speak of should have been the liquid vent valve which is used during filling only, and is closed during any other use. Your supply valve should be in the wide open position. The pressure relief valve is only operational when the tank has been overfilled or overheated. You should have a pressure regulator between the tank and the appliance you are trying operate. Hope this helped. Marvin

Just wanted to determine, for a Kawasaki bayou 220, the fuel lever positions for fuel Off VS On (ON = vertical?).

The valve is open when the lever and valve are parallel. Generally that is down. When the lever is pointing across the valve it is closed. Think T vs. I. If the lever and valve cross it's closed, if they go the same way it's open.

That applies to a two position valve, if your Bayou has a reserve postion it could be different. That would be three positions and across one way would be open, down would be reserve, and across the other way would be closed. Should be marked on the petcock if that is the case.
