    1025R suddenly won't run.

    My tractor was idling while I was off it when it started missing and then stopped running. It sounded like it ran out of fuel. When I tried to start it, it would start and run maybe 5-10 seconds then run rough and die again. A neighbor thought it is probably a clogged fuel line. Any thoughts?

    It could be anything interrupting the fuel supply. When was the last time the fuel filters were changed? I would start there as it is the simplest. Some folks have had issues with the lift pump. Do you hear something on the engine clicking a few times per second when the key is turned on? That is the lift pump.

    Agree with J.

    Seems the most common culprit is a plugged fuel filter under the left floor board.

    I had a similar problem but my dealer replaced what they said was a bad fuel pump. However, even after they replaced the fuel pump at very few hours it did it again.

    They picked it up again and found that a wiring problem. I think some wires were connected wrong. Which means that father Deere paid for a fuel pump replacement that probably wasn’t necessary. I have 50+ hours since they found the issue and the tractor has run perfectly.

    I think you should check the connectors under the seat to verify they are all tight.

    Start by replacing both fuel filters. Easy and cheap. Go from there if that doesn't do it.

    The very first thing I would check is to see if that red ring* in the fuel filter is floating off the bottom.

    I used to always give that a glance before getting on the tractor, then for some reason I stopped doing that. Probably because it never changed.

    Some time later I finally gave it another look and the red ring was topped out.

    * the red ring sinks in diesel but floats in water. If it is not resting in the bottom of the bowl then that means you have water in there.

    If you have access to the Technical Manual there should be a procedure for testing the lift pump. On my Gen-1 2-series they have you disconnect one of the rubber hoses and stick the hose in a graduated measuring cup. You then turn on the key for X-number of seconds and if the fuel supply line is not obstructed and the pump is working you should accumulate X-ounces in a specified amount of time.

    Using this method you can verify the fuel lines, filters and pump.
