Customer Question

Chevy chassis, 454 engine, back on the frame rail on the passenger side right by the gas tank, (same side the generator is on) there is a valve that is bolted onto the frame rail and is attached to a fuel line coming from the gas tank. I dont know where it goes to because I cant see all of it. The frame and the gas tank are partially blocking the view of it. There is a cutout in the frame that the head of this valve is sticking through and it is attached to a bracket bolted onto the frame. It wont pull through the hole because the fuel line is too short to let it come all the way out. this valve has fuel shooting out the head of it only when the engine is running. What is this valve, where do I get it? 1987 Itasca motorhome.

yesterday, I sent you pics of the part in question that you wanted and you were supposed to get back to me and you never did. I got charged the 28.00 and still dont know any more than I did to start with. I think this mechanic thing is a scam, and I am going to call my banks and and credit card company and turn in a dispute and do everything I can to discredit you people, what a crock of crap this scam is.

First this is not a scam, I did not receive any photos yet that is why I have not replied!

I'm only online during daytime hours, no one can be online 24 hours a day.

Now where did you send the pictures?

When pictures are added they get added to this thread/reply box and I don't see them.

I will keep assisting you until we get this figured out you have my word!
