That's what I would do.

Get a large funnel under the tap and a hose to a container so you don't make a mess.

Any crud in the tank will wash out when you pull the tap.

If you don't have a filter in the funnel place a couple of layers from an old cotton bath towel in the bottom of the funnel when you pour it back in.

One work of caution: Before you do this disconnect the + side cable on the battery. You are working right in there close to where the main + cable hooks onto the solenoid. A stray wrench stroke, metal funnel or a false move could cause a really bad fire.

Edit: Slip the throttle rod off of the back end so you can get the funnel in there better.

Filling and flushing sounds like a good idea, only thing is it cant move and the tractor is leaning to the left, away from the drain.

Guess I'll jack it up and have at it, siphon later if I cant get it all.

I've been reading nightmare stories about these Holly carbs, I just tore this one down and cleaned it up and put it back together, guess we will see if it will work or whether a Zenith is in the future. Still cant figure out how that float rod spring goes on...

Thanks guys, good answers.
