2110 gas tank issue (updated)

Recommended Posts

DMedal
2110 gas tank, I find I run out of gas with about an inch and a half still in the tank. This isn't a big tank anyway. Anyone else faced this or have an (educated) guess? -Don

I think your screen at the bottom of the tank is clogged. I usually remove the screen and place a clear in-line filter and an in-line fuel shut off. jh

answers to some good questions: a) no fuel shut off valve. a couple of 90 els of what must be 1/8" IPT, the hose, new fuel filter and to carb. shut off is on the to-do list but no leaking to deal with. b) no dents on the bottom. c) fuel line runs from below tank to carb, looping down but never getting as high as the tank. d) can't see in to see if there is a screen in the tank still. I'll check it next time it's empty. The screen idea does make sense with the symptoms, and this tank was pretty bad inside when I got it. I've flushed it but not removed it (yet). Q: if I find a screen in there can I just knock it off with a screwdriver or something? How do you remove the screen? I'm off to go burn some gas tilling so I can check out the screen. Tough job but someone has to do it. :D I'll let you know what I find. I don't see how I can get a picture of the screen, though. -Don

To remove the screen, I usually drain the tank, remove the tank, and then disassemble the fittings. Once the fittings are removed I cut off the screen. I then place new fuel line, shut off, and filter. I place the filter between the shut off and the carb. It makes changing the filter easier. jh

      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 
      Paul
