Years ago I thought I would be smart and ad a inline fuel filter to my 2n. I had the same problem and scratched my head for days. I ask the guys on this site and the other one the same thing you are asking. They all told me to get ride of that inline filter and let the screen in the sediment bowl and the screen in the elbow at the carb. do their jobs, and keep them clean. Well me being the hard head I am I thought the problem is in the inline filter so I replace it several times and still the problem was there. I stopped by a Ford tractor mans shop one day and told him the problem, he walked over to the parts hanging on the wall pulled down a fuel line, picked up a wrench, walked over to my 2n, took off the fuel line with the filter, checked the fuel screens, put on the fuel line he had, fired the tractor up and said. If you ever put another inline filter on this N I am going to crown you with this here wrench. I have never had another problem with fuel flow. Those screens work just fine.

Good story, but I don't understand how, in a simple, gravity fed system like the 8n an extra inline filter could be a problem (assuming, of course, it was not left on long enough to clog).

Because those inline filters are made for systems using a fuel pump that pushes the gas through the filters. My 8N has been running fine for 60+ years just the way Henry designed it.

I'm thinking that a flaring tool to do a 14 inch double flare is pretty special!

Brake line works just fine and will cost you less then half the price of a factory type line your call. I always use brake line any more and if to long I just put a loop in it so as to dampen vibration

That is why brake line works so well it is pre flared to the correct size plus it is a double flare so holds up better

A power steering pump or alternator pulley makes a good shade tree bending tool .

To the original post , remove the drain plug (1/8" pipe thread ) and replace with a $3 drain cock . If a constant stream of fuel will not flow into a coffee can then you can check one part at a time until you eliminate the problem .
