How to switch fuel tanks in 737-800

Recommended Posts

I know there have been posts about not being able to switch fuel tanks in the default Lear,but I can't find a way to do it in the default 737.Port tank is only one used,same as Lear.Am I misssing something or is this a problem with FSX?Thanks,Ron

I.E...if you savea cold & dark cockpit as your default flight, you may not be ableto start an aircraft usning the panels start fuctions but insteadyou must resort to CTL+E to get the engines started.As a result of these problems, I have modified a number ormy panels, both FS9 imports and FSX defaults, to include thenecessary code to allow "operations as intended"...
