Well I'm just now getting some time to work on my latest cub. I sandblasted and cleaned out the tank really good, installed new petcock and fuel line to the carb. Only thing missing was a fuel filter, so I go to Wal-Mart and buy the best looking Fram filter on the shelf. Nice big one, sure to catch any crud before in goes into the carb. After installing it, it took the tractor for a spin, only to go about 10 feet before conking out. Good spark, so no fuel. Soooo, I put the old straight cooper fuel line back on and she fired right up. That's when it hits me. There's no fuel pump to push gas throught this "'74 Buick" fuel filter, this is only gravity feed.
I'll get a smaller one. I can only laught at myself.
