|This J-3 fuel valve includes a steel handle for use with the original pushpull shut off control. This valve is a significant improvement over the original brass style fuel valve. The new valve has a stainless steel ball seated in an inert composite seat. This improved design eliminates the stiff operation and leaking around the shaft that the original design was prone to. PMA approved. Uses 1/4" NPT fittings.|
Great replacement part to stop leaking valves from original hardware
