    anybody know either where to get a new fuel tank selector or of another that will work on a '75 200 mine appears to be messed up it wont change sides and the knob pulls out about 6in

    I have already checked with most of the Light Line and all the local parts houses and the only thing it can find is one from Scoutparts.com and if I remember right it wasn't even a oem type switch

    Is it the switch or the unit under the right front fender? It is just a push/pull cable that runs from the dash to the underside. If the cable moves underneath, then maybe the problem is the unit itself. There are many threads that discuss rebuilding them. You could always replace it with a electric unit like I did.

    toggle switch, left position-left tank, right position-right tank (where the choke cable was in the dash)

    I got an electric Pollak selector switch/valve for mine. The old one wouldn't switch tanks either, and when I rebuilt the valve it seemed like it wouldn't completely shut off the tank that wasn't being used.

    The original valve is easily rebuildable. Three (3) o-rings and one (1) gasket.

    Ih only north is carrying re-built units but you have to call there not on the website.

    J J What application is the electric unit your using from? Any details on it I like the install it looks like my old chevy truck one. I would like to do that to my 72 1110 travelall.
    thanks
