I would connect the liquid line to the tractor tank. If the tractor tank is completely empty liquid will flow into the tractor tank. If there is a lot of pressure in the tractor tank you will need to vent of some vapor inorder to have the liquid enter the tractor tank. There should be a small vent on the tractor tank to squirt out liquid when the tank is full. The liquid to the fuel regulator will turn to vapor as it goes through a heat exchanger on the tractor. That is how my tractors work anyway. I stopped using my propane tractors, it was just to much trouble to transfer fuel. Stan

Stan, so the connection is made to the valve on the right? This is a half inch copper line. I assume the fill hose is a flexible hose.

You are correct. The existing valve needs to be connected to the rubber nurse hose and fitting to the tractor tank. A pressure pump is best practice as it pushes liquid propane into the tank, and doesn't rely on the propane pressure to do it. It takes 1/5 the time with a pump, and wastes less Propane. Jim
