sediment bowl

Postby taxicub » Sat Sep 27, 2014 8:01 pm

I see that TM is out of stock on the sediment bowls that the carried. I assume that these were the good ones that everyone has talked about. Where can these bowls be purchased now? Mine leaks when I screw the shut off valve in to shut the gas off. Thank you

You might not need a whole new sediment bowl. Have you tried tightening the nut around the shutoff valve? There's packing in there that needs to be compressed. Sometimes it is necessary to change/replace the packing also. The good valves are a back seat valve. Which means they seal when you shut them off and when you open them fully. Just opening the valve a half turn or full turn can cause leaks. It needs to be opened all the way until it stops. You can remove the valve if needed, by loosening the nut and unscrewing the valve, both a couple turns at a time. You need to drain the tank first though :idea: , or you will when you take the valve out :( .

You can also go a slightly different route. With my peripheral neuropathy etc., I found that the standard L-shaped shut-off was hard to manipulate so I did an upgrade :-) .. works for me and I never have to worry about leaks ever again. How To Upgrade A Cub Fuel System

I replace my leaking sediment bowl assemblies with a ball valve similar to one shown in Rudi's post.

Positive fuel shut off and easy to manipulate.
I have an excuse. CRS.

i bought a cheapo replacement for 18$ i hate it the fuel shut off knob i guess you could call it had come off twice so i ended up glue it back on plus i think it has a leak some where just cant find it it may be the bowl gasket not sealing but anyway id like to find another original to rebuild and put on my 64. mine was stripped out and glued together with JB Weld
