For a resto, I would get the new tank. Rebuild the carb, all the gunk is in the carb to. Check all fluids and get it running then you know what to fix.

I'd get a good used tank. The BIG question is, will it turn over, or is the engine set up?

Thanks for the reply. Can you give me some advice on where to get a good used gas tank? As to the engine being set up. I don't know. I guess I will have to deal with that issue when I get to it. Do you have any advice on what I can do now to check on that problem and if there is anything that can be done now to make it easier later on. I don't know how to manually turn the engine. I don't have a hand crank and I am not sure if I should get a battery and try that method. What do you think?

thanks Paul

Hello, A simple way to see if it will turn over. Jack up one rear wheel put it in high gear then try to rotate the wheel. I don't know how much oil you put in the spark plug hole so you might want to remove the spark plugs before trying.

Ryan naa in bc;
At this point I don't know enough to ask a lot of questions. About your old gas tank. It can be sand blasted out and then taken to a radiator shop and have a quart container of coating put in which will coat the inside. I don't know what the product is but I can find out if you are interested. According to my radiator shop it will work just fine. This should give you something to sell or keep as a spare. Personally I think that my tank is in to bad of shape to mess with this process. The overall cost will not make it worthwhile for me to do it. The blasting and repair of the old rust holes and the coating will cost about $150.00. I can buy one for $262.00. The difference will not include my scraping and cleaning.

This tractor hasn't been run in twenty years, has been out in the ellements and was not taken care of. So, I don't know what is in store for me. I will get the Carb rebuilt and replace the wiring harness. I am sure there are other things that will have to be done but, my tractor is parked under a big oak tree, so I have a duel problem. I must look constantly over my shoulder for those squirrels.
Keep me posted on your progress, maybe we can be of help to each other. lol Paul in NC

Hi Dean; I know what you mean about not getting the money out your tractor. I was lucky, mine was a gift from my father-in-law. He told me, though, that I was not to sell the tractor, but that I should keep it in the family. If your boy and his child, someday, begin tinkering with that ole tractor of yours--years from now; and he thinks back to this day and time, price won't be a concern. It might just then be a bargain, after all. That's what I'm looking forward to. Maybe this tractor will be a keeper for you also.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
