my 185 was running well got a load of large square bales when I was moving them around my tractor shut down, I restarted it and ran for a minute the died. Replaced fuel filter primed the engine noticed had a fuel leak from fuel filter line to pump replace gasket on the line primed up fuel system again ran unit seemed to be better the. After 5 mins it died again noticed my fuel bowl was leaking replaced the oring on the bowl primed up again ran unit minutes later died again feel like it’s losing fuel it will keep running if I keep using primer pump . Anyone have idea or had a proble like this before thanks

Try removing the return connector on top of the injection pump..
Not just the line but THE ENTIRE connector that screws into the top cover..
Its a "check ball" & gets clogged, pressurizing the system..
You CAN clean it, but if it keeps getting clogged w/ black plastic pieces, you have bigger problems.. Flex Ring.. & a pump overhaul is in the very near future.
Contact me for details.

Congratulations.. your on your way to being a mechanic.. Lol
You cant get it clean enough w/ a pick.. you HAVE TO blow it out w/ air.. AND a pick.
Tyr to see "what it is".. rust, dirt, black plastic..
