Aftermarket Sediment Bowl - quality?

Postby Greg Armstrong » Sat Mar 30, 2019 8:55 am

Has anyone purchased the aftermarket sediment bowl from Hamilton Bob's for $19? How is the quality compared with original?

I believe the fitting is different but that is an easy workaround. I use the ones from Rural King which have the same problem.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

The pic looks just like the one Bob's sells, probably the same mfg. Thanks for the heads up on the fittings!

I just installed a new Sediment Bowl Assembly from Tractor Supply on my 1972 Cub 154 Lo-Boy and it works perfect!

I used the one from HB and it has worked great for 3 years so far

About 3 or 4 years ago, the sediment bowl on my 154 started to leak. I opted to install a quick action valve and in-line fuel filter. Tractor gets a lot of use during mowing season and has worked fine so far.

I just ordered a sediment bowl from Steiner...I think it must be a new one they offer, because before I had only seen the ones with the stamped metal symmetrical shutoff handle: like this one
https://www.steinertractor.com/ABC092-Fuel-Strainer-Assembly-for-gas-engine
But one of two of theirs now has the brass L-shaped handle.

NOTE: It looks almost the same as the one offered by TM Tractors, a Forum Sponsor, but I was ordering some other parts from Steiner, so tried theirs.

I should be getting it in a few days...will let you know how it looks.

Just going by the pictures, it appears that the first Steiner part uses a connector at the fuel pipe like the early Cubs. The other two appear to use a flare fitting direct into the sediment bowl. Switching between the two styles isn't any big deal but probably will require a bit of rebending the fuel line.
