The hole in the tank is slightly smaller than the fuel line, else it would leak. So.. you can't push it in, you have to pull it in. I use a label tag wire (about 10" long), stick it through the hole and out the fuel cap hole. Snip the fuel line at an angle on the end, punch a hole in it then stick the wire through the line and twist it. Now you can pull the line through the hole.

It might be easier to simply siphon it out with some tubing. Get 7 feet of 1/4 or 5/16 tubing and stick 3 or 4 feet into your gas tank. Have a gas can under the gas door ready to catch the fuel. **** on the end of the hose until fuel is almost at your mouth and then stick the end in the can. It will pull most of the fuel out of your tank. You can also buy a siphon kit so you don't have to **** on the hose. Get as much out as you can, then top it off with gas to dilute the rest.
Good luck!

SOURCE: 2N FORD Tractor Fuel will not flow from tank to

You have a clogged fuel manifold in the carb. This is usually caused by something in the float needle seating area. Remove the float bowl, remove the float and pull out the float needle. Then use carb cleaner in the float needle area to blow out the debris or dried / varish in the float needle seat and the fuel maifold. Spray carb cleaner from the manifold / hose fuel connection and make sure that you get it clean. Then with the float and float needle still removed turn on the gas and make sure you have fuel flow.
Here is a carb kit if you need parts: (Do a net search for the kit you can get them cheaper than this one.)

I get the feeling that this tractor sat ilde for sometime and your now trying to get it going again. When a fuel system sits for a very long time with fuel the fuel in the float bowl and carb will turn into a shellac and really gum things up. Worst case you remove the carb and soak it in Chemtool B-12 overnight / couple of days then rebuild it using the kit above. (You will be glad that you did!)

You can get a new fuel cap here:

Also there is a SCREEN in the top of the fuel sediment bowl that can be caked with gunk. This will stop all fuel flow if it is blocked.

I have spent hundreds of hours on one of these... doing large garden work back in the day and moving hay in several different ways. (Brings back some good memories and makes me ponder where that tractor is today...hmmm..)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How many gallons per minute can flow thru a 1/4 inch valve with 150 psi

well=== pure water flows at 5.1 gpm thru 1/4 pipe , now valves have a slight orifice to slow the flow down some as a 1/4 valve most likely has a 1/16 orifice value , but that's just an educated guess as I don't know what valve u have , also im assuming your using pure water with a specific gravity of 1.0000 (yes it effects the rate) say hydraulic oil has a value of .0898 this will also slow the flow thru the valve

Stalls out

I own this generator and have the same problem. There is a design flaw that is likely the culprit. The engine uses a gravity fed fuel system. That's all well and good but that means the fuel must be above the highest point in the fuel line to feed properly. The easiest thing to do is completely fill your generator when you use it and it will die with 2-3 gallons of fuel remaining. If you want to fix the issue you will need to reroute the fuel line to be below the base of the tank for its entire length.

I have experimented with multiple fuel levels and fuel line configurations. I have also left the gas cap loose and removed fuel filter per recommendations from others. The base of the fuel tank on my unit is roughly 15.5 inches. The fuel valve is at 16.25 and the highest part of the fuel line is over 17! That simply will not feed fuel when the tank gets below 4 gallons and the generator will stall. Bad design by Ridgid on the fuel line routing. Only about a 30 minute fix though with some fuel line, cable ties and a small tool set.

Snapper mower engine

The RER mowers have a vent on the filler cap that must be opened to allow air in to replace the fuel that is burned. They also have an inline filter that could be plugged, but allow enough fuel to slowly seep into the float bowl and run for a short time.
I would check those two things, look for crud in the tank at the outlet, and check the float bowl for being dirty or having water. A 1/2" wrench will remove the float bowl. Be sure to drain the tank, or catch the fuel that will flow with the bowl removed. If the fuel does not flow, it is also possible the fuel line has started to disintegrate internally, while looking perfect on the outside. Pull the fuel line from the carb inlet to check gravity flow from the tank.

My whirlpool washer seems to be letting water back flow from the drain line.

sounds like the drain line is too low it needs to be higher than the water level when running a full can check this buy filling with water and stoping the cycle and see where the water stops draining im sure it will stop at the level of your drain line in the back of the washer. the drain line in the back of your washer should come out of the bottom of the washer and then go up to a drain pipe..if its lower than the full water level of the washer then gravity will take over and drain the water... i hope this helps

I own an old Culligan RO system with a particulate filter, carbon filter, RO filter and post carbon filter all connected by tubes in an open environment. Replaced filters and tank is only 3-4 years old...

It is quite common to loose air pressure in the RO over time. At times the tank will be full of water but will not have enough air pressure to push water out. Take the tank of drain as much water as possible, for 3 gallon tank bring pressure in tank to 7psi, for 10 gallon tank pressure should be 10psi.

42 inch Craftsman carburator not getting any gas. You can spray quick start and will will fire. Does gas from tank gravity feed to filter?

gas tank gravity feeds fuel to the carb. if you pull the fuel line from the carb, fuel should flow out of the tube. if it does not, then either the vent hole on the gas cap is plugged or there are contaminents at the bottom of the gas tank preventing fuel from flowing into the fuel line.
