Re: Electronic Fuel Cut-off Switch ideas ??
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] OOOOO....Kay! Here is the answer, Oh Drives-With-Jeep. The Hg switch is brilliant, and definitely should cut the current to the engine and the "Fuel Flow Cutoff Device" which I will spec in just a second. This can also double as a theft preventer.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Here is what you do......buy a six-port fuel changeover valve as used on the 1980 Shivel-A pickups for dual fuel tanks. This valve has a circuit for fuel and a circuit for fuel return. It is energize to pick up the LH fuel tank and no-energize to go to the right hand tank. Set up the valve such that the valve must be energized from the ignition circuit VIA a Hg switch, you could even attach the coil to the Hg switch as well. You go axles up....the switch opens....engine dies....fuel valve shifts to the two ports that just happen to have vacuum caps shoved over them.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
