A tilt-responsive valve particularly suited for use in a fuel supply system in a motor vehicle for preventing leakage of fuel in the event of upset of the vehicle. The valve includes a closure member biased to a closed position and a pendulum control member for preventing sealing of the closure member when the valve is in a normal range of inclination from the vertical and permitting the closure member to check flow through the valve when the valve is tilted beyond a critical angle.
A tilt-responsive valve comprising a valve body, a check valve within the body, said valve including an annular valve seat and a valve seat closure member, means biasing said closure member towards a closed position, said biasing means including means to develop an axial force on said closure member towards said annular seat, a valve control pendulum in said body, control means associated with said pendulum for maintaining said closure member in an open position when said valve body is substantially upright or within a normal range of inclination from a ...
