Leaky gas tank

The other day When I shut off my tractor, and went into the house for a couple of minutes, and came back out there was almost a steady trip of gas coming out of the Left side of gas tank. I released the pressure of the tank ( unscrewed the Gas Cap ) the leak disapeared with just moisture on the rim.

The Question: How do you fix a Gas Tank? I have heard of some stuff you put in the tank for rust that coats the inside. Will this solve my problem? And Where do you get it ??

Hope you can Help.. Thanks for your Help ( Again )

Jess, You did not say what model tractor you have but it strikes me as odd to have had pressure in your tank. Normally they are vented to atmosphere although some models may run a pressure system. As far as tank sealers go there are several good ones around. I have had good luck with a product called Kreem and another product from Wurth called Tank Coat as I recall. A good auto parts store or motorcycle shop should be able to help you out.

I have a 601. It had the same problem. I was advised to drill a small hole in the gas cap (the smallest bit you have). It worked, the pressure no longer built up. I understand the fuel flow is gravity powered so it makes some sense (at least to a knucklehead like me) that you don't want additional pressure to build up, such as when taking a tractor from a cool barn into the summer heat. As an aside, I did have to replace the valve under the tank to stop a dribble from somewhere around the carb. Regardless, I don't know exactly where the fuel ever came from but my problems have been solved with none of the usual side effects of my brilliant repairs (the law of unexpected consequences). Let me know how it turns out.

Over and out.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
