Hi
I have a B1600. There are 2 fuel taps on the engine and I'd like to know what they are for and how to use them.
One (A in the picture) is on the return from the injectors.
The other ( B ) leads from the fuel filter to a drain point at the front of the engine. This means that when on a hill with the tank higher than the engine, fuel flows out of the drain point if B is open.
Any advice welcome.
Thanks

They are for purging air out of the tractor when you change the fuel filter or accidentally run it out of fuel. ;)
