Have a early model D17 gas tractor with alot of scale, rust and other debris in the tank. I have removed alot, but I"m wondering if there is a after market supplier that has a sediment bowl and fuel shut-off that uses a screen up in the tank, like the ones used on Ford tractors?

Pretty much what I did was use a ford type in my D-17 that has a lot of junk in the tank. I still have to dump the sediment bowl about once a day if I use it much but been doing that for 3 plus years now and use it every summer in the hay field

My D17 is a 13020 serial number and it has a larger male thread than the 800 Ford sediment bowl had, do you remember where you found the will-fit-one?

I do not remember if I used a screen form a ford type of if I used a pipe to pipe part to do it. Of course your many be older then the one I have and have a different sediment bowl set up but a pipe to pipe adapter would do the same thing

I picked-up a gallon of Evapo-Rust at the TSC store Sunday. It sounded like a miracle product that you use to react with rust and form a compound that stays in contact with the tank and would not float once you had all loose scale and rust out of the tank. It must be a stable product because it says it can be saved and reused.

I open the inside hole in the threaded end of the fitting and insert an short length of 1/4" OD tubing 1.5" to 2" long. This raises the point of entry and prevents the junk from getting into the bowl. Some people also roll up a short piece of fly screen and insert into the hole in the tank fitting. This also acts as a screen

I did the same thing to the fuel cutoff valve on my Ferguson TO-35. The original cutoff had some type of screen built on it, but the cheap aftermarket units do not.

I just trimmed down a piece of copper tube and stuck it into the inlet on the cutoff, so it would pickup fuel higher in the tank,

so far, along with an inline fuel filter, inline from cutoff to carb, it has worked well for the last few years.

You also might try this. Pour a quart of ATF in the tank and if it is off shake it some then drain. Let ti sit over night before you drain it. The ATF may help break the rust etc down and then help you drain it out

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
