I have a fuel leak coming out of the hose on the left at my rear cylinder. It runs up to the shroud covering the gas tank. Can I pull it off and cut it back and reattached without causing a problem?

Assuming you mean the rubber hose that is the injector bypass back to the tank, then yes you can cut it. It probably doesn’t have much slack in it and will be very tight on the metal fitting so may just split again.

The dealer can probably get you a new one or possibly cut it from a bulk roll.

Anyway to run that hose to the gas tank? It looks like it's covered up pretty tight.

You'll need to remove the tank if you can't get to the tank side of the hose if you need to replace it.

Not really sure on your tractor but on my L185 the tube runs through a hole in the fire wall and the tank has a 90 degree barb right there that you can see and get the hose onto. I didn’t have to take anything apart but may have used needle nose pliers to get it on.

You can get access to the top of the fuel tank to replace the fuel return hose. Remove the panel in front of the tank that the fuse block is bolted to. Good luck .

One mounted vertically on the horizontal plane with yellow w/black stripe is water temperature sending unit.

The horizontally mounted sensor with black w/yellow stripe is oil pressure sending unit.

Please verify that if you have a wiring diagram by using the wiring color to the gauge

I do. Wish I had a parts manual.

You can look at Kubota USA dot com for illustrated parts list and you can probably get a printed version from Messicks but the part numbers are old and could be superseded or unavailable. The on line version is the most up to date but the pictures are not that clear
