Fuel Selector Valve
For all Cessna 170B aircraft: The detent housing type must be verified by McFarlane's technician before purchasing an exchange unit from our stock. Please call 866-920-2741.
Note: The indicated price above includes a $650.00 core charge. Detent housing and tube fittings must be sent with the body of the valve (the housing).
To qualify for a core charge refund, the major components of the core you return must be in a serviceable condition. We can also overhaul your valve - Please call 866-920-2741 for a quote and more information.
Some Cessna fuel valves require special tools and processes for reassembly. For your convenience, McFarlane also offers overhauled fuel valves. We can overhaul your valve or you can purchase one from our inventory and then return yours for core credit. McFarlane has many valve part numbers in stock and ready to ship.
Overhauled fuel valves are cleaned, inspected and assembled with all new seals, gaskets, hardware and parts as required. Each valve is overhauled by our experienced A&P technicians and pressure tested for leaks and evaluated for proper fuel flow. You will receive a "Return to Service" tag to certify the overhaul.
The fuel selector valve works in unscreened fuel. Contaminated fuel can cause selector valve seal damage. When fueling from possibly contaminated fuel sources McFarlane recommends the use of a fuel filter, such as Mr. Funnel or another filtering device, to reduce trash in the fuel system.
