Special tips on pulling an engine on a D4 series?
Posted August 28, 2011 - 07:55 PM
So in an attempt to be ready for it I wanted to see if anyone can give me some advice on pulling the motor. Obviously there isn't a whole lot of room. Does the bellhousing and clutch all come out with the engine or can it be separated and then pull just the engine?

I think I will just pull the whole thing just to make it a little easier and let me inspect everything. I know the clutch needs adjusted on the D4-7 also because it doesn't disengage the clutch completely.

Looked at the fuel filter and it was almost empty of gas. Pulled the fuel line off the carb and held it over a gas can to make sure gas was flowing and it did and filled the fuel filter in the process. Put it back on and it fired right up but the same thing happened, fuel filter runs dry and it starts to die off. I took the gas cap off to make sure it wasn't a vent problem but that didn't change anything. If it was the float it wouldn't be draining the gas out of the filter and it runs great as long as there is gas in the filter.
I have had the petcock off of this tank before to clean it up and also check the o-ring to make sure it wasn't leaking. I looked inside the tank too when it was empty and it looked good. I don't know what the issue is as I have never had this problem before. I am going to get a new filter and fuel line. The fuel line doesn't look that old but it may be deceiving and it may be old and swelled up on the inside.
I guess there is a chance of it being the needle sticking shut at the float, it is new as well as the needle seat. Not sure what else I could do to make it work any better. The gas tank is above the carbs fuel inlet so gravity should make it feed fuel.

It's been so long I forgot what I did other than it hasn't run since LOL
Usually when we take the D4-7 to shows we just push it around.

Maybe you need to get it going before plow day down here. I hope to get a plowline pic of as many Bush Hog tractors as I possibly can. I think I will have 5 or 6 of my hogs t ready to pull a plow.
