My Farmall"A" fuel tank is leaking between the tank and the mounting brackets that are spot welded to the bottom of the tank .
How do I repair this ?

Had the same problem on my Farmall C. I put in a gas tank sealer and that stopped the leak. I got my sealer from Eastwood Company. Be aware that with their product, you also have to buy a jug of Muratic Acid and a can of acetone at a building supply store. Those are for the pretreatment of the tank before using the sealer kit. A cleaner and metal prep come with the kit, but it is important to follow the directions with the kit. You will have to remove the tank. Good Luck.

I tried to post a link to Eastwood, but it did not come through. The website is www.eastwood.com in case it does not come through this time.

My Super A leaked in the same place. I sawed the bracket area out of the bottom of the tank, welded the cracked SPOT WELD from the inside and then welded the bottom back in. No more leak.

I had the exact same problem a mont ago. I took my tank off and went to a raditor shop. They told me the tank brackets were rivited to the tank. He recommended that I use jb weld to seal all the cracks in between the brackets and where they join the tank. It worked. The tank does not leak anymore.

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory. However the number of AC tractors still in existence today as either restored or unrestored examples is a testament to the quality of their products. This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong. ... [Read Article]
