Fuel Line Screen

Sat Jan 18, 2014 3:38 pm

Does anyone have any pictures of, or advice on properly installing the small filter screen that goes in the fuel line where it connects to the carb? I can't seem to find much other than a mention of it in my manuals. Previous owner had it rolled up in a tube, both ends open, and jammed/wadded in the connection.

I believe that model tractor uses a small screen rolled into a tube and soldered to the fitting. The seam and end should be closed. Like this one:

If it is the Zenith carb, Jim is correct. Double check, though...there may be 2 different diameters listed...I guessed and I was wrong. DUH!! Never was lucky at 50-50 guesses!!!
