Maybe you can help me as the internet seems to have noone with my problem .I bought a used kfx400 and it DOES have on off res...there is no prime . And any replacement ones I see online say the same ...no prime setting. But the off setting is in the same place as prime is on users posts .could this be an aftermarket peacock and when I turn it to off it is actually just letting gas flow?When I joined this forum, I kept reading about how the fuel tank petcocks cause so many problem. At the time I didn't understand the issue because my 93KQ had a simple manual shut off valve with positions ON OFF and RES. Then I acquired 3 more 93/94 KQ's and the 94 had the valve with positions ON OFF and PRI and a vacuum port to carb. This is the type that causes so many problems. However, on my 94, the vacuum ports were plugged on the valve and carb and was run in PRI with no problems. What's this thing supposed to do? Fortunately I had one available for autopsy:This is the back side cracked open. Turns out this thing is an automatic fuel shut off valve. A spring loaded poppet valve seats into the selector housing to plug the chamber that leads to the fuel pump feed port. Suck from the carb pulls it open. The reason there is no OFF position on the selector is because when its not running the poppet seats closed and shuts off the fuel, hence automatic OFF...when its working right.Showing the inner gasket. What if this leaks?Detail on the back side of the selector housing:Pulled apart there are 2 gaskets and plastic plate between them:Spring on the outer gasket side:The spring is attached to this plate. The suck is put on this plate to open the poppet to let fuel into the fuel pump feed chamber:Selector side:These are the ports from the tank:Back side of the selector note the chamber cut into it. Rotating it directs fuel from the various tank ports. Green is normal ON feed and is not switchable. Yellow is RES feed. It connects the reserve port to the normal port. With RES selected fuel is drawn from both the normal and reserve pickup tube. ON and RES go to the poppet valve. Red is the PRI position which is actually a bypass. It connects from the reserve port direct to the fuel pump feed chamber bypassing the poppet shut off valve. The selector pictured is oriented to the PRI position. You can visualize folding it back on top and see how the selector chamber directs the fuel.The carburetor connections. Note the petcock vacuum is direct before intake into the engine:I believe the problems these things cause is when the poppet gaskets leak, the vacuum to operate the valve sucks in fuel. The rouge fuel enters the engine intake after metering and carburetion causing an uncontrollable rich condition. Possibly in some scenarios a siphon or gravity feed with the engine not running causes fuel to flow into the piston area and subsequent crankcase fuel contamination. BS system. I can't imagine a good reason to design this type of tank valve. The on/off type is fine and why drag more vacuum off the engine? Its a solution looking for a problem. Probably a regulatory edict. Does sound like something a government bureaucrat would think is necessary. If you suspect your vacuum operated tank valve causing problems check the vacuum line for fuel contamination. You can run it in PRI with the vacuum ports plugged, disconnecting the rouge feed. Risk here is if your tank is dirty, the lower level position of the reserve tube will pick up the contamination. I intend to use the on/off valves on all my KQ's.
