    Fuel filter issues after replacement John Deere 2305

    Changing the fuel filter for 1st time on my "new" used John Deere 2305. Shut fuel valve off, got collar off (clockwise, not counterclockwise as in manual), and removed bowl and filter - within bowl was also spring and red plastic washer. Happened so quickly I could not tell what was where, but did not think much of it. Put filter (top with hole upright) on first - connected filter hole to small spout in center of connection. Put spring in bottom of bowl so it would pressure the filter upwards and then reconnected the bowl using collar. Turned fuel valve back on. The bowl filled up with diesel. Went to use tractor and it turned over then puttered out. Since then cannot get it to turn over. Assuming no fuel is getting to engine. Did I put the filter in incorrectly? Any thoughts out there? THANKS!! Steve

    If the engine will not turn over/ crank at all, it sounds like an electrical problem.

    If the engine will turn over but does not start, you may have air in the fuel lines.

    It sounds like you reassembled everything correctly. The "red washer" is an indicator for water in the filter bowl. It normally sits on the bottom; water in the fuel will collect in the bottom of the bowl, and the red ring will float on it.

    The fuel lines on the 2305 are self-bleeding, you should not have to bleed the lines. Make sure the fuel shutoff is open, and it should start after you crank it for a while.

    Turn the ignition switch on and let the electric pump run to help prime the injector pump. After a minute or so, advance the throttle to 1/2 to 2/3 forward and crank the motor. Do not exceed 30 seconds without a few minutes of cool down for the starter in between attempts. It should start fairly quickly, but rough for a few seconds before it clears out and runs normal.
