REVERSO manifold block.

This can be used for fuel or water. NEW.

There is an other port behind the second one in (you can see the light going thru the manifold in the shadow.

There is also another port at the far end of the block.

ALL are connected to the center passage.

$100 plus shipping from 33471

I may have a second one ,,

FF,

I've been thinking of installing a fuel transfer/polishing system so some questions:

What are the dimension's?

Looks like they are made of aluminum, right?

Assuming I would need one for supply and one for the return, right?

Thanks

If its just 2 tanks a proper marine fuel selection valve will transfer the return as it selects the supply.

No work , thinking involved.Cheaper too.

Yes the blocks are aluminum , I will measure today.

These would be good to create a transfer and move manifold set for a boat with multiple tanks.

Also would be fine for a water selection manifold for boats with multiple tanks.

I think I'll pass. I will be using all 1/2" valves so would need bushings for the 3/4" ports on the manifolds. I'll just use Tees and close nipples. Thanks anyway. The manifolds would just look cooler.

For about $35 for a foot of 2X3 aluminum and $20 for a half inch pipe tap you could make one on a drill press in less than an hour.

or...for $75 you can buy one, which I choose to do.

No, you spent $150 for the pair and if you only use one, it cost you $150.

Now the other one will clutter up the boat ... hopefully not for as long as it took FF to sell the things.

OK you are right, I paid $150 for the one for the fuel feed manifold and the second one for the return manifold I got for free.

Drilling a 3/4 inch hole the long way thru the manifold block would require drills longer than most non machinists own.

And a jig to keep the block perfectly upright .

That assumes you already have the gear to tap 3/4 NPT.

You can even build the entire boat , I have done it ,

BUT its a lot more work than some flip DIY answer to a problem would suggest..

Take a look at this catalogue page for comparisons. These are good quality. You would have to contact DME for prices if interested.

I have made alum. mflds. of 2 x2" alum bar and it was a pain. I'm not a machinist but have/had some skill and some decent tools including up to 1.5" NPT taps and not difficult, but not easy either.

When we found these we quit making our own.
