JD 5105 - fuel line leak, will there be a problem restarting?

em I am using a JD 5105 and the fuel line is leaking under the center of the tractor--two questions:

1. where is the fuel shut off?

2. when I repair the line how much trouble will there be in restarting it because there will be partial air in the line???

Joe Strickland I am also having trouble with a fuel leak on my 5105. I did find that it is coming from up top of the engine where a metal line changes to a flex line. The flex line looks like it has a crimp ring on at least the forward end of it. I am wondering if this line is a fuel return line back to the tank that allows the system to bleed pressure or excess fuel back to the tank?

The fuel runs down the left side of the engine and drips onto the ground.

Joe Strickland I replaced the flex line that went from no. 3 cylinder injector back to the fuel tank. It was 1/4 inch type. This is a return line and not under much pressure. Even though there was some air in the line, there was no problem starting or running the tractor afterward. The reason is that it is a return line, not an input line to the fuel pump.

Joe
