This lever is a direct replacement for the lever that comes standard with the Home-built Shutoff Valve, part numbers 210-CN, 200-CL and 200 CN. It will also replace the lever that is shipped standard with nearly all of the Vans RV Series aircraft. There are several advantages over the stock lever.
The appearance is much nicer than the stock lever, it is red in color (the standard color relative to fuel) and needs no hardware other than what is sent with the valve. An additional beneficial of this level is it corrects a problem that is inherent to the mounting of the valve. When mounted according to Van's plans the stock lever actually uses the handles as the pointer. With this new lever the arrow is the pointer. The nature of the installation indicates that it may be more secure than that of the stock lever as it will swage itself onto the shaft of the valve. The advantage of this is if the mounting screw does come loose the lever has a friction type hold on the shaft of the valve and resists falling off.
