    How to drain water seperator on 1023e

    The manual says to check and drain the fuel water seperator. I know how to check for floating red ring, but nowhere in manual can I find info for draining the beast. I guess maybe take locking ring off and tip upside down after turning fuel valve off. Must be a better way. Thanks, Dan

    You mean they also eliminated the drain petcock on the newer models? The more I hear stuff like this the more I'm glad to have my older version 2520. There is a petcock at the bottom of the separator for exactly this purpose.

    Do this right after you grease the entire tractor. Diesel fuel will get that nasty green stuff right off your hands, and a pint is just about the right amount to do it.

    Your so right. My father inlaw been gone for 25 years. Owned his own business with heavy equipment. His specialty was dragline ditching walking on large pads. I often helped him with repairs and he taught me to clean my hands with diesel fuel. I had forgotten this. Thanks for the memory. Dan

    This, of course, could be debated by proponents of all the "new" rules and regulations set forth by the AMA, ADA, OSHA, BSA, GSA, PTA, etc. "Back in the day" we used diesel fuel. Today the healthy set recommends we use regulated hand cleaners "approved" by whoever... The cleaner itself probably contains some interesting by products of pork or petrolium production which they can slip by the EPA rules via PAC's. I'm old school and will die old school when my time comes, diesel fuel or GoJo or WD40 (another "old tyme" hand cleaner)...
