Should be a good time, Wife and kids are heading to the inlaws for a couple of days and I get the place to myself...just me and the WD! One more question if you don't mind. What is the best way to clean out the gas tank??? Thanks again.

The fuel tank on my B had a lot of sediment in it and it was also "peppered" on the bottom. I had my radiator man service the tank and he also coated the inside to re-seal it. Some radiator shops do service fuel tanks. It cost me about $75. bucks total but came out great! That may be an option to think about for your WD....Just a thought...

If you are wanting to remove dried/gummed up old gas I would drain and remove the tank and pour a quart or two of MEK in the tank and slosh it around for a while; and then pour that out. If you are wanting to remove rust the best idea I have read is to wash the tank out with soap and water, add some gravel to the tank, put the cap on the tank, tarp strap the tank to a drive wheel on your garden tractor, jack up that wheel of the garden tractor, run the garden tractor real slow and let the tank rotate with the gravel tumbling around in side. I have never tried this but it sounds like it worked real well for the guy that did try it. I would be sure to wash the tank with soap and water real good before I tried this, one spark from that gravel in there hitting the tank and goodbye! There is another real good post here about using electrolysis for parts cleaning that I copied and put in my library, it is well worth reading too.

Today's Featured Article - Field Modifications (Sins of the Farmer) - by Staff. Picture a new Chevrolet driving down the street without it's grill, right fender and trunk lid. Imagine a crude hole made in the hood to accommodate a new taller air cleaner, the fender wells cut away to make way for larger tires, and half of a sliding glass door used to replace the windshield. Top that off with an old set of '36 Ford headlight shells bolted to the hood. Pretty unlikely for a car... but for a tractor, this is pretty normal. It seems that more often than not they a ...
