Ragwing fuel pump / check valve

Postby oldtrucksrule » Tue Jul 14, 2020 2:09 am

So, I have a 1948 Cessna 170. Due to a laundry list of circumstances, I am installing a newly acquired motor. I have my original fuel pump but, I have researched the forums and realize that I'm missing the check valve. I believe it was on the pump when I removed it to be overhauled but, now it's missing. So, my questions are, does anyone have a picture of the check valve installed they could share and does anyone know where I may be able to find these much needed items? Thanks!!!

Thanks you! This is a good place to start! I'll at least have something to go by.

John, Thanks for the picture. This allowed me to find the check valve and associated fittings.
