    Unhappy Farmall H fuel valve.

    I just acquired my dad's old H. I have not been around the tractor for a number of years. The last several years it has been sitting & rusting.

    All that aside, I went out to drain several gallons of old fuel (Smells like pure varnish). The valve on the glass fuel filter will only turn about 1/4 turn in either direction.

    Is there a good way to unstick this without unscrewing it from the bottom of the tank? I want to control where that old varnish goes.

    Thanks in advance,
    Techno

    You could try to spray penetrating oil and work it back and forth. Did you try to loosen the packing nut a bit. If that is too tight it will bind.

    Thanks Clint, I did. I ended up taking the gland nut clear out, & it is so corroded that the needle will not pull out. I have it soaking in penetrating oil now, will try again tomorrow.

    Thanks again. There is no need to have it done quickly, I just want to get all the prep work done to start it & hear it run. Kid with a new toy & all that.
    I have to wait for the new oil filter to get here anyway.
