Checked water separater no water. I was told this tractor has a electric furl pump on it. tractor started this morning ran for 30 seconds died and will not start. had problems all summer with low power and boring. changed all filters several times

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Tractor has no electric fuel pump, only has the primer pump, mounted on the injection pump. I would check the flow from the tank, to the primer pump. Any restriction in the tank, to the fuel pump, will cause low power and if plugged, no fuel to the fuel injection pump.

what do you suggest I do to check for blockage. tractor will not start now
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Loosen the line from the tank, and see if you have flow, then move pat the filter and check, then use the primer pump on the injection pump, to see if it is priming and no air is present when you open bleed screw on the injection pump. If you have fuel to the injection pump, the fuel shutoff solenoid may not be opening.
