Default Newton SPRL fuel selector valves

I have a -6A built in the late 90ís with Vans fuel selector and would like to change it to something better. I am aware of the Andair valves. What is the experience with the Newton SPRL series valves?

Comments anyone ordering, installing, operation or replacement parts?

I am biased but I like them a lot.

See reviews on the Spruce web site

I selected the 4-way non-conforming SPRL valve on my personal customized Sportsman, N11YM with over over 300 hours use by 7/11/16. For you kit aircraft builders that want excellent quality with attractive pricing, I believe Robins valve is the best bang for the buck on the market.

High quality valve, has positive stops at each location. Easy to install

Todd is using the non FAR23 compliant version. Much to be preferred

You can get a short extension kit if you want to put the valve on the floor.
