Dumb Question

Recommended Posts

Not Dumb Question I change mine once a month if it needs it or not. Having these old tractors it seems that you can get a little rust in the gas tank and it works it's way down to the filter.

On the Putt Putt I have the old style glass bowl filter right below the tank. I also put in a shut off valve downstream of that and a plastic cartrige filter between the valve and the carb. The bowl catches a lot and the second one gets the rest, I hope....

Most times I get lazy and don't change them often enough, which can sometimes cause problems. It is easier to change them on a regular schedule than to have problems in the middle of a big job.

That depends on what kind of tractor its on...If its a box store brand it probably wont last long enough to worry about the fuel filter:D:D Sorry I couldn't resist,LOL I usually change mine yearly

LOL. Yeah, it is a POS. But the engine is good, and I am debadging it. Once I am done painting it, it will look a lot better. When I get my manual for it, I will get to work on the oil leak and general clean up of the engine.

Have you seen the inline glass ones from Fram? I put one on my old truck. The case is glass and the filter inside is clearly visible, so you can see what kind of junk is laying in there. Steve

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
