    Have an 83 chevy and tanks wont switch over. When I first got the truck it ran off the Drivers sidem and wouldnt switch to the pass side. I replaced the switch and nothing. Replaced the selector valve. The new valve must have been set for the pass side which it now runs off, but wont switch to the drivers side. I know both tanks are sending fuel. I also tested the wiring to the valve, had someone hit the switch while I used a test light on the plug to the valve and it is sending a "signal" to switch over. Any ideas? or could it just be a bad valve that I got from the parts store?? Wouldnt be the first replacement part I got that was bad out of the box.
    Thanks
