My father and i are starting to both restore a 1948 c and a d15. We are wondering wear to find the gasket (proably not the right name for it) that goes between the gas tank and the bracket it mounts to. I belive it is so the tank and bracket dont rub together and wear a hole in them. Can you still by the original material and where from. Or if you cant what has people used between them. Any help would be apprecitated alot. Thanks

I used an old seat belt on my WD45. Worked good.

I purchased a short length of 1" white nylon webbing used for rock climbing from Eastern Mountain Sports. It looked exactly like the original only in much better condition. If I recall correctly, a 1 foot section cost about $1.

I used a leftover piece of yellow tie-strap that I cut off from a ratchet tie down that was too long. Works great.

I'm with Jason. I stop by the local "army surplus" store and buy their webbing. It works perfectly. In a pinch I've used short pile indoor/outdoor carpet that has a jute back. It works good too.

Mine had a piece of warp tape. I would believe that that was the original. It can be bought in ost mechanical supply houses as it is used as a gasket on vessels.

Go to your nearest fabric shop or to your nearest upholstry supply shop and you can usually find a piece of canvas webbing that is the right width and you don't even have to cut it except for length. Worked great on my last restoration!

Mike, I'm restoring a '38 B and was suprized to find the existing "pad" was cut from an old inner-tube.

May not be what Allis Chalmers used but who's going to know? That part isn't scrutinized in even the most picky shows.

I was amazed at how well the pad held up too.

Mike, I have the correct gas tank welting in a kit form for the B/C machines. The kit runs $9. + shipping. If you need it for the D series measure the lengths you need for that and I can cut them off the roll to the size you need. Drop us a line if interested....

I had the same problem with a WD and I cut a strip from an old exercise tread mill belt. works well and looks great.
