Best Inline Fuel Shut off valve

optsyeagleJuly 19, 2013

I have a Craftsman LT1000 16.5Hp mower (944.605160) with a B&S OHV motor (31C7070230E1). I am thinking about putting in an inline fuel shut off valve between my carb and gas tank (my fuel is gravity fed to the carb).

Would anyone be able to suggest the best type to get either at a hardware store or the Sears parts store.

Small engine repair shop is another option.
Stens brand is one you can look for.
Basically, you just want to match the valve nipples size to the hose inside diameter.
In your case it should be 1/4" size.
Put the valve between the fuel tank and the fuel filter, that way it's handy when you need to change the fuel filter.
