In Reply to: Ford 640 Sediment Bowl posted by Terry in Mo (T-Mo) on August 16, 2023 at 06:33:24:
I remember when my dad first got his 640 tractor it had this sediment bowl assy on it:
The threads for the fuel inlet got stripped and I put this new sediment bowl assy. on it.
The hole in the banjo bolt on the old assy. was located differently than the new assy. so I had to order to correct banjo bolt. You can see the differences in the pics.
I never liked the old sediment bowl assembly due to the fact that this used the larger bowl and it's housing rubbed up against the carb housing. Probably the wrong sediment bowl assy. for this tractor. I could have turned the housing 180° and used the different banjo bolt but the inlet would have been on the outside instead of inside near the motor. The new assy which used the smaller bowl fit better with the TSX-580 carb.
The fuel line inlets on the sediment bowl assemblies need to be on the side near the motor. At least that's what I see in pics of different tractors. It appears that both fuel inlets are located similar in the vertical position related to the carb. You may want to try to bend the fuel line down some to get it to fit into the fuel inlet. Not sure what else to tell ya.
