The fuel shutoff on the sediment bowl of my mf10 is leaking. It's a very slight leak when the shutoff is off but when it's on it's a pretty constant drip. Also the vibrations of the motor make the shutoff turn itself out all the way while I'm running it. I've tried tightening the nut and it doesn't seem to help any, just wondering if these have replaceable gaskets or o-rings in them or is it a new sediment bowl?

Probably just an O ring in there. If you need to replace the whole

filter, these guys are a good source. Of course it's not OE, but close.

Considering it's dripping on your electrics, it's probably a good idea

to put that fix on the top of the "to do" list.

Packing or ring in the shut-off portion, nut squeezes packing if it has that to form seal. Bowl might have cork gasket, try an IH/Case dealer for that or other places. Might have to be rubber now days, but they aren't as good.  As noted just removing and buying another whole unit is easiest way. Think many farm stores should have similar one in their stocks. Just need to get the pipe size going into tank right, and outlet right size, or most have  pipe threads and can get fittings to fit it and your line there.  That would be my choice.

As far as I know there is no replacement parts for the valve itself, they do sell the bowl gaskets separate but thats about it

Fuel bowls are still available, I only sell genuine B&S ones as the aftermarkets gave me too much trouble with almost all of the last few batches I got the threads were not tapped right

I usually put a replacement bowl assembly on mine when they go bad.

Just ordered a new Briggs assembly. Or at least I hope so. The guy had never heard of a sediment bowl not attached to the side of the engine and was convinced I had no clue what I needed. Gave him the part number and told him to order it anyways. Hope I get the right one...

Some engines had the sediment bowl / shut on the carb instead of the fuel tank. The Cunningham engine was that way.

Wrong item showed up today, just the bowl not the assembly so he said he'd see if he could get the whole assembly sent here overnight, hoping to have it tomorrow and maybe this weekend I'll get to give the tiller a go.
