KSB Electrical Solenoid Style - General Information
B Series Shop Manual
Two types of electrical solenoid style KSB valves are avail-
The first type is the pump mounted KSB, as shown.
The second type is the remote mounted KSB, as shown.
The remote mounted KSB is used on B series automotive
Caution: Most pumps will have a shim between the KSB
and the timing piston. This shim must be reassembled
between the cover plate and the timing piston. If this
shim sticks to the KSB and is installed with the remote
mounting hardware, it will block the regulating valve
drain path and damage the pump. This damage is usually
evidenced by a fuel leak.
Both the 4 and 6 cylinder have the temperature switch
mounted in the intake manifold as shown.
