Postby boboy » Sat Mar 14, 2020 3:14 pm

Hi,got my latest purchased SA running but fuel bowl is leaking,had to make auxilarly tank .Trying to remove assembly and 3/4 inch wrench seems to be closest fit but no luck so far and i do not want to wring off in tank.Anyone know proper size wrench to use and yes i have been spraying with PB trying to break it loose.Saw you tube video and man used adjustable wrench and just rammed it on assembly and removed. Thanks for any help. Bobby

Put the biggest wrench you have that fits on the nut. Snug up the wrench, then hit the end away from the sediment bowl with a hammer. Couple of raps should loosen it up.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I used a locking pliars (vice grip) and made sure that the grip/clamp was as tight as I could get it, then used a hammer the way Eugene described. Works much better if the tank is removed from the tractor.

I've always found that a metric wrench (18mm I think) to be a good fit for the hex on the fuel bowl assy. Give that a try.
