Replacement Fuel Selector Valve Info and Pictures
There was some great info with reguard to replacement fuel selector valves (On-Off-RES) due to the fact that polaris no longer manufactures them. I decided to put together a single thread with a few pics of what I chose to do and how I did it.
I chose to use the SeaDoo valve becuase it was only $17 and I could pick it up locally.
The valve is a perfect fit in the hull, the inlet/outlet nipples face the same direction as stock, but the positions were 90* from stock (On was up, Off was left and down was reserve).
The selector has a flat spot on the shaft for the knob to slip onto in only one position. The insturctions in the package informed the user it was ok to grind a flat spot on the opposite side of the shaft so you could flip the knob 180*. I could have done it at 90*, but was afraid the knob could eventually spin on the shaft and destroy the knob.
Doing this, as well as putting a small notch 90* from the factory one in the hull (12 o'clock position) I was able to have the factory sticker markings line up and be accurate for the seadoo valve, as well as have the inlet/outlet nipples point straight down (6 o'clock), which I happen to like better than the factory configuration.
This is by no means the only way to accomplish this, but was the cheapest, and super easy. I also ended up using the supplied knob as it fit well and had a modern look. It even included a cover to mask the center screw that holds the knob.
Hope this helps!
BTW: The pictures below were of my install on a 1994 SLT 750

FWIW, I did the same update to my SLT and only had to notch the hull 90 degrees from its current position (12 o'clock) and did not need to notch the valve.

Yea that's on his SLH...
Here's the old thread that we got the valve info from. It's actually a 'WSM' branded part. I need to remember when I go home tomorrow to grab the part number off the package. We were able to pick them up locally from partsland.com's retail store. They aren't stocked but they were able to get them in for us.
