I had to change the fuel filter on my cub 7532 and decided to
pwr wash the area under the hood that the filter is.
I have a FEL on the tractor and have to work through
the loader arms and hoses.

I installed a new filter and when I tried to
bleed the filter I got no bubbles.

Checked the tank and it was empty. Put some fuel in
and turned switch and fuel seems to be leaking. But not
at the filter.

So I must have dislodged a hose.

I ordered a service manual, but I need to know
what the flow of fuel from the tank, hose,pump,filter is,
so I can start with the 1st hose fitting.

Help my fields needed cutting weeks ago.

I would imagine you can spot the leak rather quickly, once raising the loader out of the way. If the tractor will not run, you can raise it while cranking the starter in 30 second bursts with a 10 minute cooldown between.

Generally speaking, there are only 4 clamp connections: tank to filter, and filter to injection pump. Everything after the pump is a high pressure connection. If it isn't at a clamp, it could be that the tank itself was damaged from the pressure washer, or the fuel shutoff valve leaking out of the packing.

that is good to know about lifting the loader with the starter.

It looks like the first clamp after the tank is a connection
to the filter. So I will see if it is possible to loosen it
and remove the hose and add fuel to the tank. Block the
hose and see if any leaks.

PROBLEM SOLVED
I had to remove the oil filter to get my hand in behind the
Hoses surrounding the fuel filter. Found a disconnected
Hose with simple clamp clip still on it.
Installed a new screw clamp and blead the two bleeder
Screws and two shots of the starter and I?m running again.
No leaks so far and I will start to hog the field tomorrow.
I am tempted to remove the FEL, but I will lose the ability
To lift heavy objects.


Thanks for your help robhay2
