Default Fuel system leak...

Anyone know what kind of part this is? It's for a 1989 Ford F-250 with a 351w and dual fuel tanks. It's leaking gas from the top and has 4 fuel lines going into it and 2 coming out. I already tried that parts stores and they have no idea as well as pep-boys. Thanks.

I think they call that a dual function reservoir that acts like a fuel tank selector valve for dual tank vehicles with fuel pumps in each tank.

Hey thanks! Now all I gotta do is find a place that sells that thing. Damn fords! (not my truck) I might just have to make a trip to the bone yard. Or We can just bypass it as we don't use the front tanks anyways.

Yes you can just bypass it. Just follow the lines from the rear tank and bypass that thing and connect them to the lines that go to the motor.

I was curious to I looked around and found this

this

this

BUT I looked up every part number in every thread and source I could find including fordparts.com and never found a single part listed.

Searching rockauto.com gives you a fuel tank selector valve, but only lists a solenoid controlled one. Only thing I can figure is they completely stopped using/selling the passive selector valve (dual function reservoir) because of too many problems/risks and now expect everyone to upgrade to the powered one.

That or call a ford dealer and find out for sure. Good luck
