Are the fuel vent/return lines by the tank in good shape, or are you running new ones?

I am running new fuel line and filter, I assumed the vent was just that and didn't need a line.

Thanks! I have plenty of plastic air line that fits the vent properly, kinda stiff but that is easily fixed. Question? What is that in the center of your gas cap? If the tank is vented, I shouldn't need that big vent hole in my gas cap.

Nice. Heck mine running a fuel pump has one of them oversized tops. I use dirt bike fuel line (even comes in green) lasts a looong time and may get stuff after a few months but no deterioration and add in a splash of "Deere" color lol. It's an unusual use but this fuel line lasts forever

The PVC line I have is used for a pressurized waveguide on a microwave radio system. there was plenty left over from a 2013 install. High quality stuff.

The center of the cap is a plastic insert.

I'll check on a new gas cap, can't find anything to fit.

$15, I think. Kind of proud of them, they are.

Raid the parts bin or the kitchen pantry. Clear plastic, kinda thick, able to trim into a circle and superglue into place. Wouldn't really go with the all-out resto you're doing here, though.

Thanks, I'll drop by the friendly neighborhood dealer and see what he has, may get an OEM vent tube also.

Started my morning off like this..... But in the end Mission accomplished.
$17.85 for the cap, JD didn't have the vent line but could order it. I picked up some 1/4" RAIDER polyurethane fuel line from Tractor Supply as a substitute. I didn't ask JD what the line cost, probably priced in millimeters

Caught the corner of the bathroom door at 6:00am this morning, Almost landed in the bath tub howling #$^#%^%!!!. Woke the Wife and Dogs. Been limping all day. After getting the gas tank sorted out I am staying off the foot this evening.

Well don't run in the house. 

 

 

I would rather break my arm than catch my little toe like that.

I used weather strip in place of the worn insulation pads to secure the fuel line and wires, this will have some duct tape placed over before the pan is installed. I installed the drive pulley and PTO (Yep had to re-route the drive belt again). It has a slight rub against the steering shaft, I looked through the manual and the later models had an idler installed. I am guessing this should be fine on this model. Finished installing the fuel line and filter. I'll pick up a new battery this weekend. Hopefully a running video will be soon.
