You said you have tried several bowles? I don't think the bowl is your problem. The original bowl assembly had a screen that went across the top of it. Is this screen present and clean or is it missing? You should also have a screen at the other end of the line at your carburator. You have to unscrew the line off the carb and it is suppose to have a screen in there. Check to see if it is in there and clean. Your line also might be gunked up inside or maybe kinked. If not kinked you may be able to run a soft wire through it to clean the gunk out if any is in there. If you are having problems now I am sure you will if you eliminate bowl and add inline filter. Gas should have no problem gravity flowing down to the carb and if it does then something is blocking it and it isn't air and I doubt it is the bowl unless it is like plum full of crud. Your fuel line system doesn't need to be blead free of air for the gas to flow. The air is simply pushed into the carb. I just thought of something else. Maybe your valve in the float assembly in your carb is sticking shut. Or when you turn your gas on do you just like open it 1/4 or 1/2 of turn at the valve? I know, I'm just asking. You should really open it up atleast 2 or 3 turns if your not. I am not saying an inline filter is a bad idea, I'm just saying I doubt it will fix your problem. A tractor buddy of mine puts inline filters on all his tractors. I don't have any on mine and don't really see the need. I guess it just makes him sleep better at night. I just make sure I put clean fuel in my tractors right off the bat and my mind is working on other things when I go to bed. lol I would diffinately investigate and get to the bottom of this to see what your problem really is.

the problem Im having is related to the bowl itself.Flow or trash build up isnt the problem.Sometimes the gas flows fine,sometimes it dont.I loosen the nut on the bottom gas flows but leaks at the gasket.I have changed the whole assembly with different types and bowl sizes and brands,but I still have the problem.Just tired of fooling with it!

I was having what I thought was a problem with my sediment bowl filling back up after I worked/cleaned it. I'd put the whole thing back together and turn it on and no gas would come out to fill up the bowl. At first I thought something was wrong, but I finally realized that the bowl wouldn't fill until the carb float valve opened up and allowed the trapped air to bleed out. Could that be what's happening to you?
