flow lock valve S1Eclat

Recommended Posts

Hi all Ihave no fuel reaching carbs .Ihave half tank fuel Iam running a lucas electric pump which is working fine and has been for months .I have removed pipe from carb and Ihave no fuel so I assume the flowlock valve has given up .As Ihave newly rebuilt carbs with functioning floats and needle valves I see no reason to have this in place as the pump only runs with ignition on and the needle valve shuts off fuel supply when the carb bowl is filled.Am I right in thinking Ican do away with this

I'm not sure about disabling a safety feature on a car. It could have an effect in future ownership.

See if yours is working by seeing if you get 12v at the terminal, when the ignition is on.

you'll hear a clunk.

I think I the valve is only £20.
