Fuel Filter Q

Recommended Posts

On a 725 how do you guys drain those glass fuel filters that are under the gas tank ? I see a knob to turn but before i turn it I want to make sure. Also when it drains where does it drain from ? Thnx

Shut the fuel off at the tank. Turn the screw out on the bottom of the bowl. Swing the wire holder out of the way and gently pull down on the glass bowel. The gas that does come out will be what is left in the fuel line. Dump the gas in a suitable container.

Be careful to not overtighten the thumbscrew when putting the glass bowl back on. It won't break, but the body of the same style filter on my old John Deere crawler was actually bent because someone tweeked it really hard. Had to replace the whole unit.
