I usually take those small side panels off that partially cover the fuel filters on each side of the tractor. I am presuming that yours has a CAV system and has a filter on each side of the tractor. The filter on the right side has a glass bottom half. This is the primary filter. Loose the bolt(7/16 head) on top of the filter base. Keep your other hand under the glass base. When you have this bolt completely loosened, the complete assembly will come out. Clean out the glass bowl. Put on the new filter with new 'o' rings. Note: you will also get a small 'o'ring. It goes in the very top of the assymbly. It goes over the bushing that the bolt goes through that holds the whole thing together. Sometimes it is hard to get the large gaskets to fit just right. I have been known to put the old ones back in. Napa filters seem to work the best. Also Carquest are ok. Put the whole thing back together and tighten the bolt that holds everything together. Don't overtighen or your gaskets might poke out the sides. Do the other side pretty much the same. It is simpler since it doesn't have the glass bottom. Each filter has a bleed screw on the top of the base. It takes a 5/8 wrench. Use your lift pump to bleed. It works best if your fuel tank is full. Bleed the primary filter until air stops bubbling out and close the bleed screw and open the one on the other side and continue. There is a bleed screw that you can open on the pump. I forget which one it is. I usually crack my front injector after my secondary filter is bled. This takes a great long while. The best thing is to crack the front injector and get someone to pull you till she starts. Let it run a minute or two and tighten the front injector. This works for me. I hope it does for you. I might have left something out. Email me for questions. I know I probably told you too much. You can't tell me too much when I'm learning something new. Hope it works.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
