subford- FUEL TANK SELECTOR VALVE

Hey Subford, where's the best place to buy this fuel tank selector valve, O'rielly's or AutoZone don't carry them or they carry the electric type or would the electric type be the best way to go?.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>

Can it be cleaned out, having intermittent problems with it selecting the rear tank pump?<o></o>

I just checked with a few FLAPS and all I found were the electric versions, also.
I saw this on Amazon.

Your problem may be the pump in the tank. If it isn't putting out enough, the little valves in there won't switch. Ask me how I know.

Amazon has been the best priced supplier of that valve for the last few years. You could disassembling the one you have, sometimes debris gets stuck in the mechanism.

Some good info here from Steve83: 1983 Ford Bronco '84-89 Fuel Reservoirs pictures, videos, and sounds | SuperMotors.net

I just replaced the tank pump this weekend.
