Thread: Liquid Check Valve and Rollover Valve

  1. #1

    Default Liquid Check Valve and Rollover Valve

    Any recommendations for replacing the Liquid Check Valve and Rollover Valve in a '77 CJ5? George's had them but he's out of business now.

    Best Regards.

    I eliminated the liquid check valve and replaced the roll over with an in-line roll over from Lane Automotive. It costs about $10 but eliminates the risk if you roll. The only issue was that it only came in 3/8" so it took a little line modification.

    Just an update for others that may be looking.

    Georges is out of business probably due to the recent natural disasters in Louisiana.

    Collins Brothers is sold old and doesn't expect to see anymore.

    I'm still looking and have PM'd Super8.

    Best Regards.

    Lane Automotive as well as any local speed shop should have it. It is referred to as a 3/8 inline roll over vent valve. If you are worried about emmissions then I would get ahold of Super8 because that looks like a fair price. If on the other hand you are venting the tank and carb bowl with filtered air off the aircleaner and want to make sure that you don't leak in a roll, the inline is a great safety device. Whatever position you end up in it will not allow fuel to flow out. Then as long as your gas cap is properly seated, the sender is sealed correctly, and the lines are in good shape, your fuel cell should be contained.

    All that piece is in the second photo is a Ford fuel tank roll-over valve in a rubber/plastic adapter piece. You could also use a PCV valve if it came down to it...

    To the best of my knowledge George's was down for a while but he is still in business and back up and running. Here is his web site:

    Unhappy Dumb ??

    Ummm... I think recently discovered the need for a rollover valve when I was parked on a steep decline on a trail and the contents of my gas tank started pouring out the bottom of the charcoal canister... But what does the liquid check valve do? And how are they plumbed? It's been so long since mine broke into little plastic pieces or rusted apart...

    CJSIXER,

    OK, I tried the same number again and got the same response. He's no longer at the number posted on the Web Site.

    If he's in business, he needs to update the site cause he's loosing business.

    If anyone has his new number, please pass it along.

    Hencini, the liquid check valve prevents liquid from passing through the line only when it's in the upright position. The lower two lines come from the fuel tank as shown in Fuzz401s picture above. If liquid enters, the float inside closes the output line causing the liquid to return to the fuel tank through the second lower line.

    Best Regards.

    Carl

    The last number I had for George's was 601-542-0013 which does seem to be different than what is on the site. You might want to mention that when you call.

    Those little white check valves (Part #J536-2541) are spring loaded to let vapor escape. They prevent the raw fuel from flowing to the vapor canister if liquid hits the valve the "float" overcomes the spring pressure and closes the valve.

    A few years ago I was surprised as I was walking a wrecking yard to find that these check valves are used on many different fuel tanks, not just Jeeps. I picked up a couple off non-Jeep tanks and they had the same vendor part number as the one on my 83's 20 gal tank.

    CJSIXER,

    Thanks for the updated phone number for Georges. He's still in business and 601.542.0013 is the correct number for anyone that needs parts.

    His Web Site is being held hostage currently so it may not be updated with the correct information for a little while.

    Until then, the above number works and he has 1 more liquid check value available. Due to basic supply and demand principles, the price is a little more salty than orginally seen on the Web Site.

    Best Regards.

    Carl

    That is an interesting item for the price. I wonder if they work well. If they did I would definitely consider investing in a couple.
