no telling at the times I have got back to the house after using my old TO-35 Ferg and cannot remember if i turned the fuel shutoff valve off.
My Plan: I am going to devise a fuel cutoff tag that will hang on the tractor steering wheel.
"Fuel is cutoff"
When i use the tractor i will turn fuel on and place tag in my pocket. When i am through using the tractor, i will turn the fuel off, then place tag back onto the steering wheel.
If this plan works and i follow my own rules, I should not have to go back to the barn to check the cutoff valve.
what do you think, see any bugs in this plan?
cannot tell you how many times i have gone back to the barn to check the fuel cutoff valve and be sure its turned off.
my old tractor runs great, but the carb will leak gas sometimes and its a pain to drain carb and clear it, so no raw gas is pulled into the cylinders when i start the tractor after carb has leaked gas.
hope my plan works. any other suggestions???
someone said they now make a electric fuel shut off valve you can install in the fuel line and hook to the ignition, when you cut power it closes and cuts fuel off. but i bet it would not work much better than the fuel cutoff inside the carb.
so you still could not fully depend on it to cut the fuel off!!!
