Anti-Syphon Valves

Postby Steamboat Willie » August 18th, 2014, 8:27 pm

I have a 1997 325 Aft Cabin with 350 Crusaders. The manual says there are anti-syphon valves in the fuel system, and recommends inspecting/cleaning them. The book does not show you where they are located or what they look like. Can anybody give me this information?

Thanks

Can't speak to your boat exactly, but on all three of the Carvers I've owned, the anti-siphon valves were screwed into the elbow at the fuel tank. They look just like a regular brass hose barb, but in fact, in the body of them was the ball and spring.

I keep an extra one on board. I've had on fail shut once. Took forever to figure it out.
Thanks
