Took the tank off today, still had some trash in the tank. Washed the tank out, new fuel filter & all new lines. Haven't had time to try it yet, when I fill it, I'll double dose with Seafoam. ~~ grnspot

I had the tank off mine and blew the screen out with air, then rinsed the tank until I got it real clean. In 30 years a lot of debris can get into the tank while filling. Hopefully you have it fixed. The fact that your problem occurs when the tractor is hot may indicate another problem.
Not always when hot. Just the only time I've had it happen here.
Also found a pretty tight bend in the fuel line, re-routed the new line to avoid problems. ~~ grnspot

Had much of a chance to 'play' with it more, grnspot? Hope it's working okay for you.
Haven't had it out of the shop much, too hot & too many Dr.'s appointments (4 in the last week, all but one was routine yearly checkups, just all hit at one time)! Did get the rear lift bar made & the sleeve hitch put on (off the 112). Also got the brackets modified so the "tractor trunk" will fit, mostly used for parades ( the wife will drive this one some). Did some polishing on the hood & side panels, cleaned up pretty good for a 31 year old tractor! Still need to polish the fenderdeck. I'll get some fresh pics when it cools off some, 102 out there today! ~~ grnspot

Then put it to work on water duty this afternoon, hydro works much better than a gear drive for creeping around plants at low speed while watering! ~~ grnspot
