I'm going to try this gas tank sealer trick that RedTractor came up with.
The tractor a TE-20 with Z120 contenental engine is fully intact and i'm about to start it for the first time just to hear the engine run for a few minutes with no coolant in it.
So i'm not real positive about doing much disassembly except maybe remove head and water pump.
All comments and critisizms are welcome: At this point i would like to come up with some makeshift way to clean the blocks inner water jacket so the tank sealer will stick. I'm guessing i can pour the tank sealer in thru the opening for the water pump AFTER the pump is removed.
RedTRactor recommended tank cleaning the block. That would require engine removel and complete disassembly. Best method yes i'll agree with it. However i'd like to come up with a more quick and dirty method to clean the block and to pour in the tank sealer.
Not sure why he recommended drilling 2wo holes and then to tape them up.
I have confidence in this tank sealer concept enuf to give it a try.
Comments and ideas and critisizms are all welcome.
