Default Fuel Tank Selector Plate

Several years ago I purchased a plate only for my now sold RV-9A to indicate the location of the fuel selector handle.

It was red and fit over the Vans fuel valve stem.

I now want one to put on my flying RV-10.

I have searched high and low for the vendor of this plate with no luck.

So if you know where I can get one of these I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Hi Steve,

If it's what I think you're thinking of, it's no longer available through Van's. (I have one on my RV-9A, BTW). We were no longer able to source the part.

Best Regards,

I'm happy to fab something if you like. Have pretty much a full machine shop. Can do a metal piece, front engraved plastic (like a trophy plaque), or a reverse-engraved label. Just shoot me a PM or e-mail (email is probably faster).

Example of a simple front-engraved version, RV-6 style

I have one, also has a red pointer that matches the plate.

Send me a PM with a phone number and I can get my wife to text you a photo.
