I will have to admit, though the tractor beats me sense in my seat while running it, the thing has performed pretty well, until..........

started hearing the engine try to run out of fuel. Even though the fuel filters were new, I replaced and seemed better. For a while anyway, then just totally stopped. Discovered that the flow from the tank is a trickle. IMO a pretty small tube for a big diesel. I blew air back through and it helped but I know the issue will come back.
Is this a tank removal job?

Also, of course the petcock is frozen up and no worky. It looks like the valve just threads into the plastic tank? Is that right? I was very nervous to tamper too much expecting to damage the plastic and have a big mess on my hands.

i had a tractor "2805 mf" do the same thing, i put it in my shop drained the fuel and used a shop vac to clean the inside of the tank. thinking it was dirt that got in there, also took lines off and cleaned them and problem went away.

I had the same thing happen with my 1175,.... there is a little screen about the diameter of a pencil that fits in the petcock, I took the screen out and threw it away.

No more fuel flow problems!

Siphon the tank first, so you don't lose any fuel.
