Hi,let's see if we can work together to get to the root of your problem! will try my best to help!

Deere shows three different fuel tanks designs for the D130. Is your suction from the top of the tank? If so, it has a suction tube in the tank, that has to be vacuum tight from the suction tube, to the fuel pump. If there is a vacuum leak, the fule pump will not pull fuel from the tank.
