"Gas Feed And Filter" Keeps Fuel Flowing
Terry Young had a problem with loose rust settling at the bottom of the gas tank on his International Harvester 706 tractor, causing the fuel line to plug up. The Coffeen, Ill., farmer found a simple way to solve the problem.
  He added a short upright length of 3/8-in. dia. tubing inside the tank to raise the level of the gas intake about 1 in. above the bottom. That way, rust or other debris stays at the bottom of the tank. He also replaced the original sediment bulb with an in-line filter that's easy to replace.
  C. F. Marley, Nokomis, Ill., used the same idea on his IH tractor (pictured) but added a brass shut-off valve that makes filter replacement easy.
