Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeYou seem concerned with whether or not you "see" fuel flow rather than whether or not the tractor will start?? If it actually will not start before you disconnect & re-connect the fuel line, then maybe you have a legitimate concern. However, it is much more likely a stuck needle valve than the inline filter, which is always the whipping boy" in these forums. Hundreds of thousands of gravity feed lawn mowers & other small engine machines use exactly that, inline filter & gravity feed without any problem. I have lawn mower, ATC, log splitter, and air compressor with those same little plastic filters and some have not been changed in over a decade and I guarantee that they are NOT a problem.

But it make for conversation. A proposed problem area when one can't pin point a real problem. Change it or Take it out ........then start looking for the real problem when that doesn't fix it. :roll:

i vote for finding the problem and fixing it, before removing or adding anything.. :)

the main issue i see with small gas filters is that they are so fine, finer than a screen.. that small 'fines' seem to get them. we have dust here.. and it finds it's way into anything. orange dust. makes it into the vented gas tanks and cans. have seen it in filters.. that and the dad gum water than makes gummy mess.

at least with the metal screens and sediment bowls, the stuff just sinks. I prefer those to the paper pleated filters... i imagine in arid environments, the water is no concern... here in florida it is though.. I have half a thoughttha that may be what guns up the needle valves.. emulsified water and fuel by products after airiated alcohol and volatiles and propane evap out.. :)
