Default RACOR Check Valve Identification

Had a slight drip on the inlet line to the RACOR in the engine compartment.

Pulled the 90 degree fitting and what appears to be a sort of check valve. Tightened too hard on reassembly and cracked the check valve.

See pics.

Is this something Napa would have? Anyone have a part #?

Is there a work around if I can't find one?

Thanks in advance. Deet.

Take the complete valve into NAPA or Fleet Pride and match it up with what they have. Here on result from a quick look.

Thanks Rick. I won't be able to get there until Monday, but fortunately I don't need to drive until later in the week. Will advise.

Deet, The check valve is everything but the "el" in your pictures. Take it all to the parts store. That check valve is exactly what was used on both our 90 and 92 SPs.

here is a link to a post from a week ago where KC posted a PDF which shows the part number and pic of the correct Racor Check Valve. Looks like you found the right one on Amazon. see post 21

Deet check valve not necessary, just make a short hose route it over top of racor fuel can't leak back to tank easy, cheap mine has worked four years.

I had the exact situation - crack in the same place - epoxy fixed me up till new check valve arrives. CAUTION DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN

You know I read the first two pages of that thread when I was trying to figure this out. New Check valve arrived today ($50...gotta love Amazon prime) Also gotta love the workaround, Paul. Will keep that in mind for next time.

I am assuming the RACOR needs to be primed after installation/before start.
