Postby ssettje » Wed Jan 19, 2011 8:34 pm

Fix the sediment bowl. An inline filter actually restricts the gas flow on a gravity system.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I put a ball valve in place of the sediment bowl and then a fuel filter for gravity fed systems. Used on 12 hp Kohler engines without a fuel starvation problem.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I guess I should look to see what forum I'm on before trying to answer any questions. :oops: I think I use "View new topic" to much with out looking where I am at times.

The CC quietline series with 10, 12, 14 and 16 hp kohler's only use the screen filter in the gas tank, so I think your okay with an inline filter. I even use a clear glass in-line filter on my 76 Triumph and I have had no problems.

Make sure any inline filter you use is designed for a gravity feed fuel system. If it is a filter for use with a fuel pump, it will starve the fuel flow if used on a gravity system, which all Cub Cadets with single cylinder Kohler engines are. I would rather just put a new gasket on the glass bowl and replace the leather packing on the shut-off stem with 1 or 2, 1/8" O-rings, and keep the original sediment bowl system.

I put in a shutoff value and an inline gas filter - runs fine. I have been working the heck out of it with all the snow we have been getting in Rhode Island. Now I can keep it in the garage with no gas smell and it starts right up without any cold weather cranking. I may still fix the bowl this spring and put it back on.

Will a standard rubber o-ring work or will the gas quickly deteriorate it?
