Question: Fuel Shut off Solenoid

So ive got a little project in mind & Im wondering if i can use a
fuel shut off solenoid <to control fuel flow, from the cab>

any suggestions on for a CHEAP 12 volt "in line" fuel shut off
solenoid that i could or should use.

Am i correct in assuming that the solenoid would NORMALLY be
closed <no flow> when 12v is not present ?

Im also interested in a small INLINE fuel pump <doesnt have to do
a lot of volume>...any suggestions there would be helpful too.

Only a couple of things come to mind for a fuel valve with remote control.

First is a tank change over valve with the 2nd tank fitting capped.

Local hydraulics house they have NO and NC.......about the same money. Or a propane supplier, that is probably where they buy theirs or an industrial like McMaster-Carr.

Proof of concept can be found in dishwashers/washing machines for much less money, most are viton/nylon. For the difference in price you can own a couple of little inverters.

Small pumps - a cheap electric fuel pump, paid $42 last month for 7# 145 L to replace a leaky mechanical pump.

Cheap? Ball valve, spring and a pull cable

not interested in ball valves or cable op., or anything that isnt 12v.

anyone know where i can get something like this -

The SV series is a normally closed valve that opens when connected to
a battery DC supply. Removal of power to the solenoid - e.g. via a Murphy magnetic switch or other engine fault control circuit - causes fuel shut off and engine shutdown.

SV series valves can be used in a range of engine control and fault protection applications.

theres GOT to be something similar in our own back yard...its a SIMPLE 12volt solenoid,
opens and closes to allow or prevent fuel flow...simple stuff.

now why you gotta be like that
67 bucks seems "spensive" to me...i like the 1st one <probably
cant rebuild it though>...and im guessing for all the RE-BUILD kits
out there, you MUST have to rebuild 'em on ocassion.
