Flowlock valve - Fuel System/Carbs - The Lotus Forums Jump to content

Recommended Posts

What is the general consensus on the benefit of running with the Flowlock valve fitted?  I removed mine while chasing down a misfire (now cured), I'm now in two minds as to whether to refit or not.  I appreciate it cuts fuel to the carbs when the ignition is off - is this a real (safety) benefit or just another component to fail in the future. 


I have heard it said that the Flowlock prevents fuel flow to the carbs when the car is parked on an incline!  I can't imagine this scenario in the Esprit as the tanks are well below and adjacent to the carbs - should the car become inverted well then there may well be plenty of things to worry about!


Look forward to the forums thoughts


Cheers  John.
