I have recently developed a problem with one of my fuses being blown every now and then. It has been very spuratic and I haven't had the opportunity to trace it down yet. I think that it is #4 in the fuse box. It controls the some of the turn/tail lights, some of the gauges of the dash and of course the emergency fuel shut off valve. I am going to have to fuse this shut off valve separately while I trace down the problems. Any info as to where this valve is located?

I believe it is integrated into the side of the carburator.

Thanks for your reply. It appears that there are actually two shut off valves and they are indeed integrated into the carb. They are located towards the front of the carb where the fuel filter is located. there are two sets of electrical plugs which control these valves.
