Default Does anyone have this Fuel Solenoid Linkage kicking around? (Kubota-ish)

I am trying to put together a small generator but don't have the correct fuel solenoid linkage. It would be the same as many Kubota gensets and maybe others like a DKD. Myabe you have replaced your fuel solenoid and still have the old linkage around, PM me if you do. I have looked online but have not found anywhere that has them. Cheers Dan

Thanks Birken , I did think of them but have had problems dealing with Mcmaster Carr in the past. I will give it another shot getting them drop shipped to Blaine WA since they won't ship to Canada. Cheers Dan

That is a bummer, I have found them to be 100% reliable for me and their ordering system should be emulated by all on line vendors.

Dan, looked at some 12 valve, mechanically pumped Dodge fuel solenoids and while similar, not as long. Looks like 6mm threaded stock.

I looked at a number of solutions , the linkage has to have an inline ball end linkage and a right angle ball end to actuate the lever. The solenoid I have now is just a straight push and hangs due to the arc of the lever. If I could find a 2 terminal kubota solenoid with linkage for cheap enough that would be great. But so far they are all a bit pricey. Cheers Dan
