The Standard engine in the TEA20 tractors will run without damage on unleaded fuel.

I use Lead Replacement Fluid in all my old engines. THIS is one example.

One highly illegal solution is to put a few round lead fishing sinkers in your gas tank. Rolling around they release micro amounts of lead into the fuel with the added advantage of also removing rust and lining the tank with a micro coating of lead. But as I said, it is highly illegal in most countries........ :D

The MSDS sheet lists the Lead Replacement as; 10-30% naphtha, 10-30% distillates and the balance to 100% as "other". The "other" is listed as non-harzardous therefore, there can be no lead in the product. Does anyone have a clue what the active ingredient is?

I can vouch for the fishing sinker trick Bob . I placed a few in a friends fairly grotty TEA tank , within months the inside was clean and bright . The filters though were working overtime and needed repeated cleaning for a while . One thing to watch though , if the sinkers are too large and heavy they will knock against and damage the bronze upright gauze filters inside the tank .
