How to remove fuel tank filter/screen? 917/7117

Recommended Posts


A rubber grommet holds it all in place. As far as the screen, I know that I have removed them and run an in-line fuel filter. It gets and keep the junk out of the tank. In my opinion the screen keeps the junk in the tank. I have removed all of them when I get a new tractor and run an in-line filter, as do many of the guys.

Looking at a parts diagram, it appears I would pull the nipple/filter part out of the bushing, overcoming the barb on the nipple/filter. I'll try by spraying a bit of wd40 and see if that lets it slip out.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
