They stopped making them in the late 90's.
Anyone have an economical alternative?
I would like to maintain the dash mounted switch if possible.
Kragen has them. Not that brand. I think the one I bought was made borg warner. It's for automotive use not marine.
Thanks guys. I'll check with NAPA.
They aren't marine approved and have a sticker right on them stating so - but I just installed one in my daughters boat anyway. NAPA should have exactly what you are needing if you can ignore the not for marine use deal.
Any of you guys have a part number/price?
If it flies, floats, or fornicates you are bound to have trouble with it.
When I added a little power over the stock engine, upped it to around 500, the Pollak you have pictured didn't allow enough fuel to the engine. As you can see in the picture, the one I took out is a lot smaller than the Pollak I replaced it with. Oh and btw, the little one came with the boat as original and it was not marine approved probably due to the plastic fittings.
just food for thought

Cas, the valve pictured on the left is also a Pollack? I assume its the three port listed on their website.
What are the extra wires on the plug for? The valve I took out only had two wires.

1. tank 2 sending unit
2. fuel gauge
3. tank 1 sending unit
4. to switch
5. to switch
The switch needs to be a DPDT and the part number on the selector valve is 42-154. No, I didn't do that by memory, I needed to find the instruction sheet
It is CG approved but I'm not sure Pollak makes this particular valve any longer. If you don't need it right away, just keep an eye on ebay as they pop up once in awhile. I think I have the old one around here that you can have for the price of shipping. It should hold you over until you find one of the bigger ones should you want to go that route.
These were never marine rated. It's a motor home tank selector. At least that's what they were listed as when thousands of them found their way into boats back in the day.
The one on the left is a GREAT switch.
Anyone got one of those selectors not being used??? The one on the left.
