Hi guys. I have an open-sided 165 with the 341 Kohler. It does not have a fuel pump so it would have to have a sediment bowl right? When I look online all I can find is an inline filter. It didnt have either when I bought it so im trying to find what originally came on it. Thanks guys.

It should have an inline filter , I have only seen a sediment bowl on older 60's machines .

The fuel shut-off has a screen filter that sticks up inside the tank. Have seen some with no inline filter and some that do. Best to use both imo.

Even if the original only had one, it is best to put a two filters on an old garden tractor.  Unless you pay to have the gas tank steam cleaned and resealed.

Thanks guys. I seen the screen that fits inside the tank when I took it all apart, I just assumed the filter or bowl was missing. I wasnt sure if it would pull through an inline filter without a fuel pump. My 69 International 125 has a sediment bowl.

Should have no problems with fuel starvation unless its clogged with debris.

The parts list shows only the in tank filter for it. An inline should be fine with it.
