Hello, I have a ford 960 tractor and are having trouble with rust and other stuff getting into the fuel tank. I have seen some fuel tank liners for sale to stop further rusting. My question is how to out the liner in the gas tank. Thank you

Sounds like you just need to clean your tank.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Lining a tank with success takes preparation and hard work.. If you expect it to out last you you will have to prepare the surface to accept the liner... I have used several different types of liner and they did a good job... I treat lining a tank just like painting raw steel... A new tank is hard to beat and a properly lined tank is also...

I forget the name of the coating used on new tanks even when the tractor was new but raw un-coated steal will start to rust immediately...

I have had good results with Red Cote. Only did them on fuel tanks thats could not be replaced by repops. Good results so far, but I don't plow for ten hours at a time!

Take the tank off and pour some muriactic in it. Turn the tank various directions letting it set for a while when turned. Look inside,when it looks clean, pour out the acid and rinse well with water and baking soda. Might pour a little oil in after to coat the tank until you put in new gas. Do this outside.

I have read mixed reviews about liners. Some folks have done it and got years of service out of them.
Others have not.
I would not use a liner in a fuel tank.
I would rather just replace the tank with a new one.

Ok, the reason I thought about the liner is because when I was plowing you could only plow for about 10 before the fuel line would get plugged up.

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]
