Default Check valve

Get your LHS to order the one from TME. They're large high volume units. B.J.

My LHS always has them and I've used them as a check valve for YS engines also.

Just go to your hobby shop and look around the fuel tanks. If your LHS is worth anything they'll have a bunch of them.

Make one real easy.......use a GP fuel filter, ball point pen spring and a large BB or Ball bearing.

Cut spring in half, open fuel filter, place ball bearing and spring in filter, close filter.

Presto! one check valve. You can vari the pressure by the lenght of the spring.....experiment.
My wife lost several pens before I got it right.
