Problems with John Deere L110
My John Deere L110 lawn tractor started running very roughly, acting like it wasn't getting fuel. I replaced the fuel filter and air filter as first steps. When that didn't work, I checked the fuel pump to be sure it was drawing okay. From there I looked to see if there was some problem with the fuel tank. That's when I found the pickup tube was loose and may have been sucking air along with fuel. The tube fell off and couldn't be reattached. The fuel tank was replaced to fix this problem. Now the tractor runs rough some of the time, but will run okay in between. The new, clear fuel filter isn't completely full of fuel...it looks like there is a bubble of air inside. Could this air be causing the periods of rough running since they appear to be mostly associated with going down a grade rather than up or on a level surface. Any ideas about air in the fuel filter? How would I get it out?
