Question about Ford Garden
2N FORD Tractor Fuel will not flow from tank to carb. I have drained the tank and removed the sediment bowl assembly blew it out and cleaned it along with the fuel line to carb. If i loosen the pressure on the sediment bowl nut or remove the inlet line to carb fuel flows. I also drilled an 1/8 inch hole in fuel cap incase vent is clogged
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:

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..)
