Thanks for responding to me, as for the fuel line I have exactly what is supposed to be on there(steel brake line type threads,) and I've got the sediment bowl (bulb) leakage issue solved. My issue is the valve stem shown in the second picture and the packing that is shown in that picture. The packing on the valve stem seems to be all shriveled up (like me) and doesn't seal around the shaft as shown when I turn it out to turn on the fuel. I saw replacement valve stems but wasn't sure it would fit properly in mine. The numbers I posted are cast into the top if the casting, and it's most likely a Ferguson part but it's been on it since I've owned the tractor 20 plus years. I'll order a replacement valve stem and try it, but I would much replace the packing and retain the old valve stem if I could. Thanks and God Bless, Beth and Allen.
