I went to check valve settings and see I need a Torx tool to do it. Does someone know what size it is? Maybe T 45 or T 50. Otherwise I have to get it undone somehow and take to Napa or somewhere to match it up. I posted this a few days ago on tractor tales with no reply. Thanks for help. Ed Will Oliver BC

I don't think they are that large. T15 or 20 would be my guess.

Do not remember for certain, but I think a T40.

A little warning. Don't use the torx to adjust!!!! You need to HOLD the torx and loosen the jam nut. Then use the torx to get the your setting. Then holding the torx you tighten the jam nut. Simple but you can break things. They are 4 and 6.

As far as size, I vote with Tractor Guy. (I don't know which one, but its about that small. I have a whole set at work and just pick the one that fits.)

Like Jeffcat said, turn both the torx setscrew and the adjuster nut hex with a wrench at the same time to loosen them.

Fuel will flow through a fuel pump with gravity. It probably is the needle and seat or possibly the float.
