So I’m thinking about adding an inline fuel filter to the D-15. There seems to be some sediment recurring in the glass bowl from the fuel tank, I assume. Recommendations?

Does your sediment bowl have the filter/screen on top inside of it?

That sediment bowl should do the job. Maybe time to clean fuel tank.

Ok, I guess I’ve never heard of that. Exactly how does one go about cleaning the tank? Thanks!

Just cleaned one on my d15, depends on how bad the inside is as to what needs to be done. If it’s just sediment and small particles from the fuel, drain the fuel, pull the sediment bowl off the bottom of the tank, flush it with a garden hose and wash all the junk out. I use a bottle brush attached to a long handle to brush any junk out that’s a bit stubborn. Let it dry and put it back together. If it’s rusty you need to pull the tank off, remove the sediment bowl and fuel gauge, plug the sediment bowl/drain hole and flush the tank out with water and be sure to fill it as full of water as possible, dump the water out through the fill hole, don’t skip the water part unless you want to blow yourself up. Then add some small clean rocks or nuts (yup rocks!), some carb cleaner and shake to buff the rust off the inside of the tank. Once clean dump the rocks, flush with water and reassemble.

.

It doesn't hurt and may even help avoid problems using an inline filter.

One thing to make sure when installing keeping the filter away from a hot manifold. I've seen the plastic bulge up from heat before on a tractor I bought.

The other item: if you are putting away the tractor in the fall to have the last tank fill up you do with non-ethanol gasoline, and then shut the bowl off and allow the tractor to use up all fuel in the carb. Ethanol seems to allow water to come out of solution when hit with tank condensation vapor. Then the water in the tank rusts it out.

I would echo the thoughts on cleaning the tank. I would add that in MY case it wasn't always enough. When I did the tank on WD 'Grandpa', I employed electrolysis to get the rust off. It did this well. However, after power washing and re-installation, the rust just kept on coming. Short story, I installed an inline filter. Made the impression on me to the point every one that came home got an inline for several tractors before I gave that up.

Enter the 756, this thing sat for who knows how long. I got it with a stuck engine. Knew the tank was going to need some attention before I had a usable tractor. Strapped it to the wheel on the NF 45 for a good tumble. Well, must not have tumbled it long enough. Probably did except there is a partition in this tank. The 'media' didn't get on the one side to scrub it that well. End result, I'm fighting rust getting in the carb again! Really didn't want to cut the fuel line for a filter but eventually did.

Anyway, inline filters have worked great for me.

Take the tank to a local shop and have them clean it with muriatic acid. Everything will be 100 percent spic n span in there, then get the tank lined. It will never rust and you will never need an inline filter. I have had many tanks done and have never had a problem. It's the best long term solution.

It doesn't hurt, IF you replace the rubber gas line every couple years. and make SURE you have a gravity feed fuel filter.

i made a right angle steam cleaner wand to get in the tank and wash the sides and top , i also have used rocks and straped it to a cement mixer the mixer will do the best job if the tank and rocks are dry

add a short "stand Pipe" inside the tank, basically on the top of the sediment bowl fitting. 

I did mine by drilling a 1/8" hole in the top carefully down just half an inch and put in a piece of copper tubing that I had cross drilled at the top in a couple places. the copper tubing needs only stick up into the tank about half an inch. open on the top, and cross drilled on the side.

Like Myron (DSeries4) I opt to take the tank to a Radiator shop. There they can hot tank the tank out, line it, and you're good for another 40 years. The stand up pipe as Ron mentioned is a great idea along with an inline fuel filter just to catch any debris that got past the sediment bulb. After the tank has been done, it sure doesn't hurt to add some dry gas to the tank every time you put fuel in it. This gets rid of any water or moisture in the fuel from condensation or a bad batch of fuel from the gas station...

I have these serviceable glass inline filters on two tractors. I like them far more than the original glass bowl as the gaskets on them can be a pain. After doing a simple tank flush and pinhole repair on the tank for the "B", the cleaning interval of this inline screen filter is now very stretched. The screen is fine enough that the needle never hangs up. My plan was to include a picture here but the upload failed. Cry

UPDATE: I went to the local Allis Chalmers parts store and bought a carburetor rebuild kit. I drained the fuel tank and removed the shut-off valve at the glass bowl. The guys at the AC store said, “Whatever you do, DO NOT REMOVE THE JETS from that carburetor.” It was odd that my buddy, (an ace mechanic) told me the same thing. So I took the carb apart and sprayed every orifice I could find with Gum-Out. (Insert copyright symbol here). Put everything back together. I used some steel wool on the shut-off valve seat, and also some dental floss for nut backing when I put it back together. Well, after getting gas back into the carb, the old girl fired right up. I took the plow (2 bottom) and made a couple rounds just to see if she would pull and all is well. I did peer into the gas tank when it was empty and it looked all nice and shiney in there. My best guess is that I may have contaminated the fuel when I installed the new fuel gauge, but that’s just a hunch. Nevertheless, we’re back in business, and thank you all for you valuable advice, guidance and expertise.
