fuel system

Recommended Posts

i have a B-1, Big Ten, Landlord 101 and a B-12. the B-1 and the Big Ten came to me with glass bowl style fuel filters. the other 2 did not have them but i have since installed them. were these original to the early A-Cs and Simps? the landlord has been sitting for several months. when i put gas in it today, the float was stuck and gas started running out of the carb. it has done this consistently. (same with the B T and B12 but not the B-1) i am tired of having to tear apart the carb to clean it every time i want to use a tractor. is there a cure? i suspect the ethanol in the gas is messing up the needle valve in the carb. and what may be different that the B-1 never has a float problem?

The B-1 and the Simplicity 700/725 tractors were the last to have the glass sediment bowls. All of the B-10's, B-12's, and Landlords came with an in-tank filter with a built in shut-off, not the glass bowls. I have had ethanol problems in tractors that sit for a few months.

      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
