Ran out of gas for the second time. When I take the gas cap off, I have approximately an inch of gas left in the tank. It's like a Motorcycle with a reserve.

Is this normal for these tractors ?

they have a screen that stands up about an inch in the tank on the fuel outlet. most likely that is plugged up. the real fix is to pull the tank, clean it out real well and blow that screen out. or u can put a good fuel filter inline (before) then get in the tank with long reach pliers and rip the screen off the outlet.

Also check that the fuel line comes out of the tank and goes straight to the carb inlet if it drops down say an inch it will do the same had that happen to me on the Suburban 10. Got the line set so it makes a straight shoot to the carb and no problems since there's very little drop from the bottom of the tank to the carb inlet.

I cleaned the screen on my 66 Suburban 10, now it works fine. I just screwed the Petcock out of the tank. The screen is attatched to it.
Hope this helps
