Sediment bowl screen

Postby bullmack » Sat Jul 24, 2021 9:51 am

My cub is a 1949 and starting leaking fuel around the glass bowl. I ordered a new screen and cork gasket and when pulled the bowl to replace the screen I found a screen different than what everyone sells as a replacement. I've attached a photo of the underside of the "cup" the bowl sits under and both screens. The screen that came out has the plastic reinforcement and a large center hole. The replacement screens hole is too small to fit over the center section of the "cup". Why am I being sent a screen that doesn't fit? Is my sediment bowl assembly the wrong one?

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

It looks like your old one is better than the new one. Can you just clean the old one and reuse it?

They both are sold. I have both and both work. I think the original without the seal and the original style seal may be better.

Your sediment bowl is an aftermarket replacement. I believe that you can get the plastic reinforced screen at NAPA.

I had the exact same plastic screen/gasket combo in a sediment bowl from Steiner. I bought a screen and cork gasket from Tractor Supply. USA made and under $5. I just had to enlarge the center hole a little bit by pushing a sharpie through it. Haven’t had any leaks with it.

Me too! Couldn't get that plastic one to seal at all. Went back to a new brass screen & cork washer. Just gently pressed the screen around the center.
