Sediment bowl problem

Postby Dusty B » Mon Jul 24, 2017 7:41 am

Bought 2 new sediment bowls- crap!! Base fitting is metrics,. Outlet is much smaller than the standard brake line compression fitting from TM! Have no idea what the size is!?!?! Anyone else had this problem?? Wanted to go to steel line but the IH carb is also smalller with a hose fitting!! Guess I'll just have to stay with the. "crispy Cub" setup and hope for the best!! Didn't know I Had made a carb with a small in let!??? Dusty B :

On the aftermarket sediment bowls I've purchased, they have all come with their own compression fittings. You just stick the fuel line in and tighten it down. You can't use the factory compression fitting.

My problem has been that they don't completely shut off the flow of fuel. Between that and a slight leak at the carb, the fuel runs out after 6 months or so. At least it keeps the fuel from going stale.

Do you have a picture?

Dusty, II've seen the aftermarket ones, with an adaptor, with 1/2 inch NF thread, that is used o the standard metal lines.

Personally, I wouldn't fool with any of the imported junk. Use the genuine CaseIH product. Comes with the correct fitting. Expensive, but I don't think you'll regret it.

Since you said it's smaller than the std fitting, try 1/8 npt. I've seen some with that thread.

I have had success with fit and 100% shut off with bowls from TM and from McDonald http://www.mcdonaldcarb.com/product_p/ms65545.htm. I found the McDonald bowl a little easier to turn on and off.

The McDonald one looks exactly like the ones from Tractor Supply I've been using. I even paid the long buck and got one from Steiner's one time and it was the same.

I have no problems with Case IH sediment bowl assemblies on both of my Cubs. The old compression fitting had to be removed.
