1456 fuel tank to filter line picture needed please.

Recommended Posts

I am making a new fuel line from the tank shut off valve to the fuel filter inlet for my 1456 and would like to see a few shots of the factory line if anyone would have one available. My line has been cut off and a hose installed part way in-between, but the front part that is left don't look like it is shaped correctly. I looked it up on the parts listing and the picture they have drawn is not a lot of help either.  They do not list a part number of the OEM line, but I would guess a 1256 would be the same. 

Here is a picture of what I have on the tractor now. I don't think the 90 bend on the filter base end is correct for this line or I would copy the parts of the line I have and just build it with the same shape I have on the ends and just guess on the shape of the missing part.

Thanks!

Mine has kind of a s-bend to it..........Not sure if that is right or not, but what is on mine.  Will grab a picture later today(Someone may beat me to it though).

Although my  picture does not show it very well, this one has a pretty tight 180 bend back at the shut off bend, which I think is correct. I don't think an S bend would be needed to get it routed, but they may of made it that way for vibration and resistance to cracking.

 A picture would be a great help.

Thanks for your reply!

From the parts book....don't look like it was ever offered through the parts system as a replacement part. It tells you to use a 22" chunk of 3/8" tubing and a couple inverted flare nuts and make it accordingly.

I forgot while doing chores, Its out sitting in mother natures shed in the barn lot(Waiting on parts for the starter).  This is what was on it as long as I had it, whether its right or not is for debate.  And yes, the temp probe isn't right, but not messing with that until it is rebuilt;)

That makes perfect sense given what I have left of the OEM line still on there. Maybe there was a reason IH felt they needed to keep it tucked in under the fuel tank directly to the rear of the engine. But I can't think of any attachment/option that it could interfere with. Or maybe it was to lessen the chance of vibration or cracking as I mentioned above.

Anyway thanks a bunch...that is exactly what I needed to finish fabricating one.

Haywire that 1026 line looks just like mine.  

I agree that the basic shape of the line looks very similar, but the routing is different. I THINK the the routing of TP's line looks more "correct" then Haywires.

Every one of my 407 engines except ones with factory installed belly tank have the same line. Belly tank style has bleeder before filter. An 856 CUSTOM might have a different line since it has 37 gal fuel tank.

I think those might be the same lines installed in a different rotation. My 1456 had a rubber line. Thx-Ace

Yes, I think you are correct.

It seems like these lines get bent, modified and screwed up all to often, mostly from sloppy workmanship.
