I need a fuel shutoff...

OK so i have a chinese CT70, the tank has two fuel lines running from it an "on" and "reserve" line ... both go to a petcock on the bowl of the current carb. I am going to replace the carb with one that will work better but will likely not have a fuel petcock built into the bowl.

SO i need a simple inline fuel shutoff with the ability to source from two lines from a tank.

Where the hell do i begin to look for something like that?

How about starting with something from a lawn mower???? See Briggs-Stratton link.

Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Briggs & Stratton 698183 Fuel Shut-Off Valve For Quantum and Selected Models, In-Line Valve

i guess i could get two of those and have a Y after it.

I really am looking for a 2 in 1 out valve with a center shutoff option.

You can put the Y in first...

On second thought this defeats the purpose of the reserve. Sorry.

FUEL FLOW VALVE from Aircraft Spruce

Something like this might work.

Everything that I could find that had a 2 in to 1 was for marine use and was larger than the one in the link. You might be better to use 2 small valves and put a Y in after them.

Most manual petcocks have a main, off, and reserve position. This is accomplished with two pickups, one relatively tall, and the other right at the bottom of the tank. There is absolutely no reason why those pickups could not be used as hose barbs, with the reserve filter removed and a suitable piece of brass tubing epoxied into the reserve hole. All that's left to do is connect and clamp the hoses and mount the assembly in a convenient place.

Look for a valve for a smaller bike to avoid having to incorporate reducers to adapt to the existing hose sizes.

Here's a good example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-Petcoc...8ec3fd&vxp=mtr

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

yeah, i figured worse comes to worse... i take the hacksaw to the bowl of the old carb and chop out the fuel selector / filter and thread in / epoxy in a lil barb or brass tube.

Thats probably what ill end up doing, im just looking for the lazy mans way out haha.
