    They sure do!

    Just tell them its for a Chevy Dually around a 1985 or so.

    We buy them all the time and keep forgetting to peel the part# off the box for future reference.

    I'm surprised that you install those on boats not being a marine approved item. Pretty risky.

    When a Boat comes in with one already installed that's not working or the plastic barb is broke off,
    We give our customer's the option's they make the decision.
    We also have them sign off on a waiver for the non Coast Guard approved items.

    That's the right direction ,but have you asked your insurance company if that covers you ? Not your attorney but your insurance co. Hate for something like that to bite you in the ARS when you thought you were covered.

    Having a USCG sticker would just triple the price for the same part............

    That might be, but there is a reason for that as well. If you are interested in what those are, Fred at Imco will be more that happy to explain it to you. He told me what it took him to get there fuel valve USCG Approved and it is a very detailed and very expensive process. Why do you think there are not alot of other approved electric fuel valves on the market?

    True, and the one for my dual-tanked '84 Ford diesel was $140 already.

    The really sweet thing is you can wire the gauges thru the valve too, and it selects the gauge with the tank.

    Your laws must be alot different than ours here and I am pretty sure that if your company installed a non-approved fuel valve and something happened that involved that part, you most likely would not like the outcome signed waiver or not. Not something I would ever want to find out.

    For the people that are still using those style fuel valves, go out and turn the key to the first position so that the ecect valve can be activated. Move the switch to the position that energizes the valve and leave it on for a few minutes and then go touch it. You will see what I am talking about.

    Neil,

    I don't think that varies from state to state. If as a "professional" you install something that you as a "professional" know is not the proper part but you had the "unknowing" customer sign a wavier and something goes wrong. You can use that wavier to wipe your ass, because it will be worthless in-front of a court of law.

    I'm about 99.9% sure of that.

    edit: at our office if Joe Dipstick wants me or one of our loader operators to overload his pick-up truck or small trailer with rock or sand and I know it to be unsafe and I do it anyway(even with a signed wavier) and he heads down the road and gets a blow-out or broken axle and the truck or trailer goes into oncoming traffic and kills someone who do you think is going to get sued ? Even if the customer ( with the wavier) doesn't sue us the other injured parties have the right to.

    I'm not sure what type you're talking about, but REX sells manual ones for $25 brand damn new.
