How do I replace a Fuel Filter in a Riding Mowers & Tractor?

Follow these steps to fix your issue:

  1. Disconnect the spark plug

    The tractor can be parked on a level surface. The parking brake needs to be set. Remove the key from the switch. Allow the engine to cool down. You should wear gloves to protect your hands. Remove the spark plug wire from the tractor hood. If your tractor has two cylinders, you should remove the spark plug wires.

  2. Remove the old fuel filter

    Pull off the lower dash's fastening. To block the flow of fuel, pinch off the fuel line with hose pinch-off pliers. Put the shop rag under the fuel filter to catch drips. The hose can be removed from the fuel filter. It's a good idea to clean up any spilled fuel.

  3. Install the new fuel filter

    To connect the hose on the new fuel filter, use the hose clamps. The hose pinch-off pliers need to be removed from the fuel filter. Put the lower dash back in place by securing it with the rivet.

  4. Reconnect the spark plug

    Lower the tractor hood if you need to connect the spark plug wire. If your engine has 2 cylinders, you should connect both spark plug wires.

Time required:

15 minutes.

You would need the following tools:

2 hose pinch-off pliers, pliers, shop rag, work gloves.
