I just recently rolled my tractor backwards and as far as I can see I have a split fuel line is there any other things I'd need to check? Steering rims drivetrain etc?

I flipped one a while back... for the most part, everything was fin. Aside from my squished flywheel shroud/air filter.
The steering squeaks too now.

Depending on where it hit, look it over good. Your engine may smoke when you fire it up again, but it shouldnt be anything to worry about(unless there is a bigger issue with the engine) Mine smoked for about 5-8 minutes... ofcourse, alot of that was probably the spilled oil burning off the exhaust lol

Just look it over. We have broke steering wheels, tie rods, seats, batteries, lights, axles, etc.

Yep visual inspection and let it sit for a few minutes for the oil to settle a little. Maybe you might spot something dripping such as a fuel leak lol.

Yea so far the only thing is the fuel line and a screwed up air filter housing. Other than that I haven't drove it

Just check what got hit when it rolled. but if it runs and drives and does not leak anything just keep driving until it dies. lol

Is this thread a joke?  Rolling Eyes 

First check the tractor for broken things, next check for bent things and leaks, then check all controls for proper operation with the machine not running...  Razz

here is a sketchy story. When my 717 was stock i flipped it backwards and my foot got stuck in the wheel. I then noticed gas leaking and i was basically trapped for like 30 seconds till i lifted it up and got my foot out. but it was scary because gas was dripping and it was still running so I thought it could ignite.

check that i didnt throw a belt/chain, nothing is dribbling out of places it shouldnt be, check for bent or broken parts, check and make sure the throttle isnt stuck, let it sit upright for a few mins and check the oil, and fire it up. thats what i do with my quad anyway, havent rolled the mower yet

Check for a bad connection between the seat and the steering wheel.  Laughing

Neck, arms, legs, fingers and toes then my "junk", in that order. There was a time when I would have done the "junk" test first but I'm too old to worry about that anymore.

short answer to that question is: Everything!

a rollover can damage/bend/spindle/break/misalign just about everything. While it is MANLY to flip it back on it's feet, hop on, and GO, it isn't very SMART. Check it out BEFORE you hit 30, and find that the steering is locked and you are heading for that tree.

I would check the basics make sure nothings cracked split or leaking. Jump on and ride if something feels wrong the investigate further. But if your mower can go Fast check everything or you will get hurt.

I flipped my murray going about 16 mph around and corner, it is fine but I bent the steering shaft since all the weight was on the steering wheel. It still functions but kinda bugs me, I might buy a new one sooner or later.

Use common sense. if you put your car or truck in the ditch, what would you look over when you get it out? its like the same thing.
