This new fuel sampling port is custom-made for Pegasus with dual Viton seals to meet the SCCA requirement for a fuel sample port. In addition to the main Viton seal at the base of the fitting, a second Viton o-ring seals the stem to prevent leakage while drawing a sample. The male 1/8 NPT pipe thread gives you several options for attachment to your fuel system (see table below). The valve also has a nipple for attaching a 1/4 inch ID hose (not included) if needed. Depending on where the valve is located, you may not need any hose at all.
Hint: If a hose is needed to take a sample, remove the hose while racing to prevent the normal shock and vibration of a race car from acting on the weight of the hose and causing the valve to unseat. Zip-tie the hose to a nearby frame rail or other handy location so it will be with you at impound!
