• LawnSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again LawnSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of LawnSite will experience a major upgrade later this week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue..

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit LawnSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow LawnSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, LawnSite Team

Dual fuel tank trouble shooting.

I have a 1987 C30 Chevrolet truck with dual tanks. Works great when left side tank is selected but wont switch to the right side tank. Appreciate any hints on how to fix.

Start with the selector switch on the dash board. They are very inexpensive and are easy to fix.<br>Next check the valve unit. It is located on the passenger frame rail under the floor. It has a 2 piece shield over it, and will be a pain to get to. Check the weather pack connector there, and then use a multi meter to test all connections and circuts. That should tell you if the vlave is bad or not.<br>Dino <p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org

you can tell if it is the selector down on the passenger side frame rail if you get under the truck with the ignition on, truck off. Have someone switch tank switch, you will hear the selenoid click, if no click, run a jumper wire from the battery to the long post on the switch on frame rail, if when you hit this switch with the jumper you hear the selenoid click then for sure it is the dash switch,<p>or<p>if you have a current light, ground it to the frame and hold it on the pos wire going into the unit when you have someone switch the tank switch, if no power, check for power going into the switch, if power not going into switch follow line to fuse block<p>i assume you already checked the fuse for the tank switch??<p>-abe<br>
