Should this filter fill up when I turn the gas on? It does not.

That depends on the design of the filter. See tip # 15.

Looks like you like living dangerously there.

do you have flow from the glass bowl or shut off start there to assure fuel flow and go down stream

Precautions taken..put the clear filter on to see if I had fuel flow,because when I?m working it some times it will just quit and won?t restart until I let it recover for about 5 or 10 min then it will run just fine. Thought it could be a fuel restriction. Will take all that junk off and Ferrell?s in some copper line before I blow up

No need to do that. A standard 1/4 x 30 inch brake line from the parts
store has the correct fittings on both ends and will bend to fit for ~$5.

Filter is installed backwards, there should have been an arrow on it that indicates fuel flow direction. You shouldn?t have it that close to the manifold, FIRE hazard.....

If you removed the plug in the bottom of the carb, you should see fuel moving thru it. It will not fill with fuel as long as the float needle is closed.

Copper is only slightly better than what's there now. There is a reason why copper isn't used for fuel lines.

Just buy a new line from this site and be done with it.

Or, as Royse said, buy a brake line & fittings and bend it correctly to fit.

Lotsa good advice given -but in my opinion you don't need that thing. The fuel system already has 3 filters in line -two in the sediment bulb, one in the brass elbow carb inlet. Besides being a major fore hazard as mentioned, never use rubber, plastic, nylon, copper, or aluminum as a fuel line. The fuel line is made and sold by every Ford Tractor parts supplier already pre-bent exact as original -see LINK. The steel 1/4" line uses special fittings made for fuel and brake lines -7/16-24 UNS. get out your Operator's Manual and read the chapter on the fuel sediment bowl and how to clean. Just some friendly advice.

If you leave that mess on it long you won't have to worry about it, tractor will burn up.

i'm curious, lester - could u be more specific on "long" ?

mine came with a plastic inline fuel filter. i've had it for 7 years now, and it was on it for who knows how long before that. hasn't burned up yet, i'm just wondering when u think it will.

I think you are lucky. You do understand it's that piece of rubber hose right next to the hot exhaust part of the manifold that is the problem, not the filter itself? (which has been pointed out is NOT necessary, it the stock filters are all in place as they should be, and could be a problem on a gravity feed fuel system like an N)

look, i appreciate the sentiment here. but u seem to have (mis)read my post as an endorsement/recommendation of inline filters.

do i realize the rubber line is a risk? well, i replaced both pieces a couple of years ago, so... ya.

did bruce say some won't work with a gravity feed setup? he sure did. but it ought to be apparent that mine is not one of them Wink

i did not install this filter. i am not telling anyone else to do so.

but i strongly disagree with the sentiment i quoted in my earlier post, and i again ask - how long is long? i'd be willing to bet more tractors survive such a filter than go up in flames because of one - probably far more.

tractor COULD burn up? fine. tractor WILL burn up? Rolling Eyes
