fuel tank switch on Chevy

1984 Chevy short box Silverado.

I can only get the truck to pull fuel from one tank. I bought a new switch and installed it but it still won't switch off of the driver's side tank over to the passenger's side tank.

Any ideas? By the way, I checked the fuse panel and I didn't see anything at all related to the fuel tank.

Have you checked the switching solenoid under the truck by the tanks? Sounds like that could be your problem.

You might look at the condition of the hose too. I had a leak in mine, didn't lose gas but sucked air. So not much gas got to the fuel pump. Good Luck! ...Mark
