Unbelievable to me but the one I picked up at the Ace Hardware cost me $3. I was looking for one in the store and asked an elderly employee if they had any. He walked toward an aisle, and I followed. He reached down on a bottom shelf pulled out a box and took one out and said is this what you're looking for? I said yes, how many do you have. He said three and I said I'll take them all for $3 each. Bargain of the day for me. I've used two of them and have one on the shelf for my 226 project.

Keep the Peace :cop: :peace:

That's providence @Harry , when you find a hard to source part in a local store at a price like that.

I was able to move a little ahead tonight. 🚜 Reassembled the fenders, gas tank with new fuel line, 3pth. It's not exactly Lego so it took me about an hour and a half. Then I installed the fuel pump just as the team was arriving home from shopping at Walmart. Wasn't able to take any pictures before it got dark. 🤷‍♂️

Noticed some leak below the fuel pump so I made a new gasket for it. Cleaned up the carb nicely, re-installed. New fuel line, new clamps everywhere, new fuel filter. The tank is clean too. Now it runs beautifully once again. The new owner may not even realize it, but the fuel delivery system should be good for a long time. Now it's time for this tractor to do some work: gravel duty, plow out the potatoes, and more... :bee:
