Yeah I use very nicely machined ball valve. Feels very heavy duty. I love it.
Here's the weird part. This new ball valve, actually works as a valve. Turn it on, fuel flows mightily, filter fills up with fuel, etc. Turn it off, fuel stops. So you ask what the heck is so wrong with that. Well nothing, but the old valve just about peed like a 97 yo guy with prostate problems....just sorta dribbled and got worse with life....must of had a leak and an obstruction!
