Air in fuel line?

Postby dc714 » Sun Jul 07, 2019 5:43 pm

I've got a 198? F165D. I changed the fuel filter and didn't bleed the air before I restarted and ran the engine. Would that cause the tractor to run but lose power and die intermittently especially under load? If not, what else could I check?

Also, I cannot find any bleeder screws on this tractor, neither at the filter or near the injectors. Any ideas where they are?

Thanks.

That is most likely caused by a bad fuel feed pump. You can test it by unhooking the hose and pumping manually using the little lever.

I got the pump. I can't get the old pump off. It is held on by two nuts. I can't get a wrench or anything around the upper nut because there isn't enough clearance between the nut and the pump. Has anyone had this issue and found a solution? I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks.

You might need something like this (only not 3/4" :) )

Thanks Aaron. I managed to get it off using vise grips and a lot of patience. It was not easy. The new one is on.

One more question, I drained the gas from the engine. Do I need to do anything after I refill the tank before starting it up?

Thanks for all your help.

You will want to bleed the air out of the system using the hand pump on the pump you just installed.

Do you know where the bleeder screws are on the 165? There aren't any on the fuel filter housing as I've seen in "how to" videos.
