Re: Fuel Stick

Hi Pat,

I have broken my fuel stick twice and have very successfully repaired it, I am now in the process of repairing it a third time.

Do you have a photo of the broken stick?


I have fuel diverter valve which sends new fuel through a Racor filter—Thanks Ian and Judy- through a pump and then into the tank. Zealous crewmembers have broken the stick by not removing it from the tank before turning the diverter valve.

It is an easy permanent fix on Kimbelite. Please send photos and possibly the stick can be repaired.

I broke my plastic fuel stick , I am thinking about making one from aluminum bar stock. Is there any reason that would be a problem to use in the fuel tank ?
