L118 JD Gastank Peculates

Jim Loomis, Jr I have a JG L118 that the gas tank is not peculates making an air block and causes the engine to starve itself. I have to disconnect the fuel line and let the fuel run back into the tank and then start the machine again. I put indoor/outdoor caulk around the gasoline assembly where the gas line goes into the tank thinking there might be a hole in the gasket but the problem still exists. I also have changed the fuel filter, still peculates causing the engine to starve. It runs fine for awhile but then it starves itself for fuel. Any help out there?
Rick First that indoor outdoor caulk wont work at all
for your idea. The most common problem your having is a stopped up air vent in the fuel cap.
Try running the tractor with out the fuel cap and
see if it does okay. If so then either replace the cap or drill a tiny hair size hole in the cap
for air. The fuel isn't perculating, it's not
flowing because of building up a vacuum.
