A Fuel Filter, Doh!

Recommended Posts

When I have been driving my AC713S around since I finally got it finished, every ten or fifteen minutes of driving, I would need to adjust the carb. It was puzzling me. Couldn't figure out what could cause that variation. Getting ready to remove the carb for another tear down, when I noticed the problem. In my haste to get this tractor fully functional so that I could take it to GOTO, I did install a fuel cut-off, but forgot to put in a fuel filter. Probably lots of varnish in that old gas tank that is now coming loose and building up in the main jet area of the carb. Hope none of you others ever make this mistake. B/S fuel filters are cheap. Use them. It will save a lot of headaches.

I've had that happen a few times to me, I had to choke the engine to get it to run, now I know whenever that happens I have junk in the carb. With 5 or 6 tractors, I'd need 5 or 6 filers and fuel shutoffs, and right now I need air filters too. Even though its not good to do, i've been re-using old carb gaskets on all these engines:I, and never had a problem doing it. From what I hear, it seems the kohlers have alot less problems than the briggs:p

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
