Tractor Fuel Repair issue need advice

I dont know anyone can help me. I am working on a Chinese made Tractor King 404 tractor and cannot seem to get a bolt to go into place. There is a tube coming off the fuel filter that goes into the bottom of this assembly. The bolt on top was unscrewed and will not go back in. It has a spring on it and when you try to push it down it is hitting on something. there are some small holes in the top of the bolt. I tried to push a small nail in there (thought it may release a catch), but it did not help. However, I might not have been able to push it in far enough to release the catch, if that is in fact what I need to do. I posted some pics of what i am working with. If I can get this bolt into place, I will be able to try and fire this piece of junk up. I would appreciate any help that anyone can be provide.

Did you try to put it in without the spring? Did you take it all the way out and inspect it. If it has a spring on it, then is the unit meant to move with pressure. Maybe it does not have to seat? Is a sleeve missing? Or is the spring made to keep the bolt taught while under vibration? Thus it is not meant to move. Could threads be stripped and thus the bolt is loose? Upon inspection of the holes in the bolt do they actually activate a catch mechanism? I try to give you my approach to solving this riddle. john

Why not google for "Tractors"? There are a lot of good sites with technicians that answer questions such as this. I think one is called "Tractor by tell" but not sure.

they bolt will not come all the way out or go back in. I can compress the spring, the bolt is just hitting something. I will try to find something smaller but strong enough to push into the holes in the top of the bolt, not sure if that will help though.

You might want to do some reading / posting here: http://ctocf.proboards.com/index.cgi Chinese tractor owners club forum. Your Tractor King 404 from Rural King has a Chinese made Foton engine.
