i wanted to see if anyone else knows of a place to buy a new fuel tank. in a month or so i want to put my 986 i picked up this past spring in my shop and do some TLC that is much needed, what i have is the top fuel tank behind the cab it lecks and this tractor also has a lower fuel tank under the cab. right now i can only fill the bottom tank as it has a 1.5 inch hose that goes from the top tank to the bottom. i asked my local case dealer for a price of a new one and he told me $1000.00 ,it is a blow mold plastic tank didn't know if anyone knew of an aftermarket place that sells tanks for this. thanks for any help.

you are unable to see it were it is bad, and i would like to remove the bottom tank anyway as the top tank has a nipple for the hose to go to the lower tank. i not sure i would trust repairing for the age and have fuel in it for may years, might make it hard for it to seal.
