Fuel cell check valve?

What are you guys running for a check valve and breather filter on your fuel cells? I had "t" into the return line with some cheap plastic check valve. Now I'd like a -6 an setup that I can clamp a filter on......

Any suggestions?

I just used a empi filter for my breather. As for the return line, I did not use a check valve because its a closed fuel systems. I only ran a check valve for the breather.

I used a all aluminum -8 rollover valve at the cell, with 1/2" clear tubing up to the top of the cage, and down to the floor, with a small K&N filter. This is the standard race setup. You can also do a loop around the tank and then down, if you dont want the hose to be visible.

On the return, as an alternative to T-ing into the overflow/vent, I drilled and tapped into the aluminum angle filler neck, and put a barb fitting. You can also add a -6 bulkhead to the cell if youd rather.

no filter on the racer, no need to go up over the frame, it looks stupid also.

do one full loop around the top of tank then send it down below the bottom of tank.. we use a check ball one, about 6 an size.

the point is no matter which direction the tank ends up sitting the fuel cannot run out.

Brian I just installed a vent and anti rollover valve onto a jaz fuel cell. I purchased from jegs or summit can't remember which. I also installed a fuel gauge sender while I was at it.

I had to drill a 3/4 hole into the bladder and 1.5 clearance hole into the metal fuel cell housing. The output was -6AN.

pics of my fuel cell or a link to the rollover valve? My cell is at John's so maybe he might snap a pic. I had to buy a -6AN elbow also.

Brian, Call Foddrill Motorsports speak to Denny. He will be able to help you and most likely has the parts in stock. They also make brake lines with all the good stainless parts.
