Does anyone out there make a 6 way tank selector valve that has the 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch fuel fittings on it so there is not a restriction? I have one on mine and it came with my 90 gallon tank but feel that there is too much restriction. Pics are in my garage. PLEASE HELP!!!

I've been looking for years, 3/8"s feed and 5/16"s return is all anyone offers that I know of for now! That switching valve has been nothing but a pain even with lift pumps. It's going bye bye soon along with all the hoses and wiring in favor of a pump fed fill for the main tank!:ro) From the drivers seat of course!:phatyo:

www.northrntool.com has a six way valve kit but not sure the port sizes. It comes with the valve and wirering.

I think they're all from a "standard" source. I don't make any big fueling demands, but mine has been performing fine since I installed my aux tank kit in Dec. of 2001.

I think Pollak makes all of the ones you see offered by various people. It's the same one I have on my truck and hasn't screwed me up yet. If someone wants to make a badass valve with some real size inlets/outlets, I'd definately be inthe market for it!! Keep us posted.

If you want to spend the money IMCO makes a six way that has 250 GPH \ 400 lb operating pressure valve. Pricey but it looks like it will stand the test. Plan on spending around $400 for the unit.

$400? That would sure buy a lot of $36 Pollacks - I guess I'll stay with the 3/8" ports.

But the Pollack won't handle the 250 GPH either. Since this is made for offshore boats and has all of the US Coast Guard safety stuff built into it, like a manuel switch over, the cost is high. Bottom line, it has the capacity that a regular valve does not.

No doubt the super valve is worth the price, but who's running a Dmax that requires 250 gph? I'm no racer/puller, but I doubt seriously that my Pollack is not providing enough flow for my engine - even without a lift pump.

I couldn't find it on a search on the Northern site - but I'll bet you a beer that it's the Pollack valve. Also sold on JCWhitney.
i second that bet. Northern sells the pollack
